In Topic: Hello, some help would be appreciated.

PHP isn't actually a programming language, but its great to wet your feet in. It has a lot of programming aspects to it. I'm a web developer, and on local environments I use a program called XAMPP. It's almost the same thing as WAMP I think, but its in an easy to use .exe. You just run the program and start up the service. Place the file in the xampp folder, and your good to go! Give it a try:
apache friends - xampp for windows

Also, a great place to look for tutorials on PHP is this guy, if you don't mind video tutorials:
phpacademy's Channel - YouTube

He explains really well, and has a forum so you can ask questions if you don't understand things. Good luck!

Thanks guys for the replies!

Gregwarner- I thought of that myself and inserted a cout command at the end of the function so it would display the end digit before I posted this thread, and it still didn't work! I suppose I may have put it in the wrong spot though. I believe I put it directly before the return; part of the function. Not sure if that's right, so I figured I'd ask, to make sure.

Lespauled- Thanks for the program, but I'm afraid it didn't help any... I get the basic jist of recursion, but unfortunatly I'm not too indepth with the C++ library, (I'm quite the beginner, I've only been learning c++ for about a month!) so I don't get many of the functions you've used. My main question is, where in the function does the function 'actually' end, which is what the recursion calls. That's all I'm confused about. I would like to get a more indepth knowlege of recursion is all.

Thanks again guys!

Thank you Nazim I think since we are totally beginners we use Visual Basic. Was told didn't need any experience. Wrong!

Just a few questions, Pls bare with me. What is #include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main() {
Also In the int why did you add (penny1=1, penny2=1)? penny3=1?
Thank you

He wrote that in C++. Not Visual Basic. Its best to tell us what programming language your using up front, otherwise people will make assumptions (C++ is a very popular language). If your learning your first language, and you haven't started yet, why not switch to C++? There's much more documentation, although I don't know anything about Visual Basic, but C++ is a great language to learn, I'd reccomend it.

Thank you very much! I can't believe I didn't think about that. I'm relatively new to programming, as the only thing I've done in the past is PHP (which most people consider a scripting language), so debugging is not one of my strong suits. I'll be sure to remember the truth table though. Thanks again!
