    Dear All,
    I have read some C/C++ programming book,and according to examples of these book to practise. Now, I can code a small program by imitating these examples,but isn't able to design a program to achieve my ideas(to solve some actual problems). SO,what can I do next to able to code a program that is my design,how to skillfully program to achieve a project.Could you share your experience to make me a great progress in programming field.
    Forgive my developing english. Thank you very much!!!

    What was the book?

    One of the most effective ways to master a language (and programming in general) is to establish a problem that stretches your skills and solve it.
    What exactly are you struggling with?

    Design your program on a flow-chart.
    Make a plan.

    Program according to the flow-chart.
    Stick to the plan.

    When you face new ideas, and think:"Hm, I like to implement this and that, and hey, that would be a cool feature." Write it on a piece of paper. During the programming the list will grow.

    This list is ver 2.0 of your program. :)

    Split your project up in small parts (modules) that can be solved independently. Do not try to solve all problems at once.

    and, after time, you will build a 'library' of these many modules. Review code from other sources for thier usefullness, keeping an eye out for techniques that can improve your style.
