Lesson 12: OOPs, I Did It Again!

This would be the only time I will capitalize on a really bad Britney Spears reference. I promise. ;-) This lesson introduces us to the wonderful world of C++ and Object Oriented Programming. It's not terribly code-heavy, so this might be a good time to look over past lessons to make sure you understand concepts pretty well -- it only gets bigger from here. :-) Learning to Program with Haiku, Lesson 12.


  1. Hi there!

    I am wondering if there is any way to publish your lessons in pure html? I am reading them on Haiku GCC4 build and I can't find any working PDF reader for it. I know I could switch to Haiku hybrid and install BePDF - but I am a little freak when it comes to lightweight software... :)

    Best Regards,

    One more thing - have you ever seen a well designed HTTP protocol C++ class for BNetwork Kit? I am trying to create one myself - but I am literally too stupid...

  2. I certainly can understand wanting to have lightweight software. Haiku certainly is where it's at in that regard. Sadly, I don't plan on doing straight HTML. PDF fits best into my workflow. I've had significant Real Life issues that have sucked up all of my free time the last couple of weeks, so extras just aren't in the cards, I'm afraid.

    I do so little network-related programming that I'm not familiar enough with anything to recommend from personal experience, but you might want to look at libhttp. I think I've seen it used in BeOS apps before, so it might be at least a place to start looking.

  3. Thank you very much for your kind answer!

  4. Hi Fatygant!
    There are several online converter PDF->HTML. This is the "official" one from Adobe :)
