    OK, recently I've been bored so I installed Palib and DevKitPro...And I was wondering, since I don't know how to code at all, if the Palib wiki will teach me everything I need to know or if there are some good tutorials out there that would help alot aswell.

    If there are any good tutorials, could you please post the link.

    Thanks.

    I also recommend looking at the code examples and the documentation that comes with PAlib, as well. I have found these to be the most useful in my own coding. And if you want to dig deeper, the PAlib source code itself is really helpful sometimes.

    You'll also want to read some general C programming tutorials. A Google search should yield dozens of them. I'd advise reading as many of them as you can. Even though a lot of the same information will be repeated over and over, it's good to get it from multiple angles.

    And remember to START SMALL, but that doesn't mean you can't be creative.

    When I'm looking for tutorials online, is there a difference between C and C++? Or is the coding basically the same?

    The C++ is an "evolution" of the C , rather it serves to model objects in 3D!


    Start by learning C before, then you complete with C ++ [​IMG]

    There are a lot of tutorials on the web to learn C and C++ [​IMG]
