Top critical review
Not recommended if you're totally new to programming!
11 January 2013
I had high hopes for this book, now I've got nothing but frustration!
The use of fltk early on in the book is a disaster if you'd hoped to go away (like I did) with a laptop and spend a couple of weeks getting stuck into the book without internet access. I'd already got Dev-C++ and MS visual C++ installed so hoped I was good to go!
Over a week later and I'm still trying to get this setup to work!
This is not for the totally green novice, too much online research to use a book!! The book should do what it says on the cover, not need hours of extra work to use it.
Very disappointed in having probably wasted my money.
