    I want to get into C++ / coding mods for games. Been active in a mod for Quake 2 for almost 7 years. There is no way to carry the mod over to Quake 3, but Quake 4 is on the way.

    I want to know which books / materials you used to learn C++

    Which compiler did you use?

    Is there a compiler that works better for game modding?

    I learned C++ in school from an old textbook, I believe it was the first edition of Thinking in C++. For a compiler I use the gnu C++ compiler. I also suggest any of Scott Meyer's C++ books, they are excellent.

    I've been going to school for a few years in Computer Science and we've used too many books, but one reference I use is C++ in a Nutshell. The primary development environment I use is Eclipse, the compiler is the standard g++ 4.0.
