Certainly, here's a list of topics you should learn to establish a strong foundation in C++ basics:
Installing a C++ Compiler: Understanding how to set up a C++ development environment on your computer. Writing a basic "Hello, World!" program. Understanding the structure of C++ code, including statements, expressions, and variables. Learning about fundamental data types such as int, double, char, and bool. Using cin for input and cout for output. Formatting output with manipulators. Comments and Documentation: Adding comments to your code for documentation and understanding. Arithmetic operators (+, -, *, /, %). Assignment operators (=, +=, -=, etc.). Comparison operators (==, !=, <, >, etc.). Logical operators (&&, ||, !). Increment (++) and Decrement (--) operators. Conditional statements (if, else if, else). Loops (for, while, do-while). Checking user input for correctness and handling errors. Defining and calling your own functions. Parameters and return values. Understanding variable scope and lifetime. Using try-catch blocks to handle exceptions. Defining and using constants. Enumerated types for named constants. Implicit and explicit type conversions (casting). Declaring, initializing, and accessing arrays. Working with C++ strings. String manipulation and comparison. Understanding pointers and references. Address-of operator (&) and dereference operator (*). Dynamic memory allocation with new and delete. Managing memory with pointers. Creating structures and using them to represent complex data. Reading and writing data to/from files using streams. Including headers (#include) and defining macros (#define). Using #ifdef and #ifndef for platform-specific code. Using debugging tools to find and fix errors in your code. Writing clean and well-structured code. Using functions and modules. Coding Style and Best Practices: Adopting good coding practices and conventions. Using C++ Standard Library: Exploring standard library functions and data structures. Building simple programs to apply what you've learned.
