Can anyone recommend some books on learning how to make bots with C++. I've looked around and haven't found any good ones. I looked at tutorials on youtube but they mainly focus on console applications as oppose to using Visual Studio to create bots. The Visual Studio tutorials which do exist have very limited information on making bots and how to go about it. Also, is C++ a fairly good language for creating bots - I want to automate web processes like making a bot which creates a squidoo lens for example. I'm quite familiar with PHP and someone I know suggested I look at C++ because the syntax is very similar.
