    Starting with Java or C# is usually recommended.

    cplusplus.com is usually a good start for reading, or go to 3dbuzz and watch the C++ VTMs which I would recommend, they are great at explaining things and its kinda funny...

    I'd recommend starting with C instead of C++, but that's personal preference. The best resource for learning C is without a doubt Kernighan's "C Programming Language." If you're still intent on learning C++, then check out C++ Primer Plus. You can also learn quite a bit from CarlH's programming lessons that you wont learn from either of those books, although I'm fairly certain that he also focuses his lessons on C.

    Disregard that.

    PHP and ASP are interpreted languages meant to be run on a webserver, C and C++ are compiled languages meant to create standalone programs.
    They're entirely different categories, and age of a programming language doesn't mean crap.
    Programming languages don't go out of style, they don't spoil, age means crap.

    tell that to PASCAL, Cobol, and the 50+ other languages that are dead and outdated and got replaced by new languages

    C is dying out, C++ is still rampant and popular, C# hasnt taken over yet but will eventually

    They didn't die due to age, they died due to other factors, mostly being too specifically-targeted, or lacking newer features, while stuff like BASIC (which predates both Pascal and C) is still around in various forms.

    If a language no longer has any use or has been superseded by something better, it will die. It won't die of purely old age.
