Newbie, I can do the hello world program, and also know some of the commands like tab and new line. There is some other ones, but since I can't do it from memory I don't consider is something I know.

BTW, what's up everybody. New here and enjoy the site.

Just on a note: win32 is an API, it has nothing whatsoever to do with your knowledge of a programming language.

Consumed- well to program win32 api, that kind of implys that your advanced enough to know about pointers and structures and different data types, after all not every newbie can make a windows side scrollar with bitmap images right after hello world. so id say that it says a little bit anyway for your knowledge of the language itself.

The Windows Operating system is so buggy. most of my c++ programs wont run on it. i do not write programs with bugs. my programs just do random things.

Even though I've been C++ programming since Sept. '04... sad.gif

the problem is those who are not familiar with the win32 API would find it difficult to participate in the poll. if some one knows C++ quite well but has used, say, Qt or something like that, then what should he/she select in the poll? also there is no reason why someone who always creates console based projects cannot have better knowledge about C++ than the one who creates windows based projects.

Haven't read through all the posts in this topic yet, so hopefully this wasn't said:

There is a fine line between being genius and insane. WinAPI is no where near that line. If you understand WinAPI and think it makes sense, please look for the nearest mental hospital.

As for myself, I have been programming in C++ and Java for about 4 years now. I am just getting into design patterns by the GO4. I have dabbled in OpenGL for about a year, and I am now trying to make sense of WinAPI.

I can easily create win32 applications but I'd consider myself anything but an expert in C++ smile.gif

I don't think this is a very good poll. Because creating easily win32 apps doesn't mean at all your expert in c++. When i look at myself, i think i'm advanced, and i'll be expert when i'll fully do a 3d graphics engine. Until then, i'll mess with my 2d codes, and winApi codes.
