Alternatively, if you really wanted to learn, you could find some yourself instead of being spoon fed.

I typed in "C Tutorial" in Google and here's the first result. It looks like an adequate tutorial to get you started. Learning C is a pretty good way to get started. I recommend "C for Scientists and Engineers" by Johnonbaugh and Kalin if you want to get a book and start learning.

http://www.physics.drexel.edu/courses/CompPhys/General/C_basics/c_tutorial.html

Here's another useful link I found:

Just mess with it yourself. There should be a tutorial in the help menu. That's how I learnt C++

I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

Yes i really want to learn, I read some sites by myself but wanted to see if someone who has more experience than me can point me in the right direction, because guess what if you are not experienced you don't know if the site is actually accurate or if its even correct.

Thanks to everyone that actually took some time to help.

just reading this stuff doesn't help. You actually have to do it if you want to learn. Get yourself a compiler, write programs that do whatever, solve your math homework, organize your porn, etc....

and what language are you trying to learn?

Ok, first thing you need to do is get yourself a compiler and a text editor. One of the better integrated-developing-environments that has both in one is DevC++ by Bloodshed. Here is the link to download that :

http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html

Now that you have a compiler/text-editor in one, you can start writing code. Since I suggested you start with C, get some code examples from the previous links I posted and write the famous "hello world," which is a simple program that prints "hello world" onto the screen. You can learn more about syntax, functions, operations, pointers, structures, and whatnot later on.

Now, saying that, being able to write code isn't everything. You need to know what every line of your program does. Why do you say main(int argc, char** argv)? What does #define mean? What does #include mean? What do they do?

You need to start being independent and start researching this stuff. Feel free to PM me or whatever if you need help.
