* to C++
Hey, give me a hand here. Give me a small app for me to port to C++ from any other language. Something simple, nothing overt complicated and that it doesn't include any weird libraries.
Write your own app.

I have a friend who writes lunar lander in any language he's trying to learn. I haven't tried it, but it sounds like a good candidate to me.
I am serious, I do need something to train my C++ on. And Philo's sugestion is simply great.
