Getting started with C++

C++ is a widely used general programming language. If you want to get started using C++ on Windows download Code Blocks here, specifically the file named, codeblocks-17.12mingw-setup.exe. The install should be nice and easy.

In the file menu open an empty new file. In the new file post the following code:

#include <iostream> using namespace std;

int main() { string s1, s2, result;

cout << "Enter string s1: "; getline (cin, s1);

cout << "Enter string s2: "; getline (cin, s2);

result = s1 + s2;

cout << "Resultant String = "<< result;

Save the file with the .cpp extension.

Then go to Build . . . Run

You will be prompted to join together separate strings like this:
