Why all coding tutorials never explain what the codes mean?

I found so many tuts on coding such as vb6, c++, delphi etc. They tell me the coding steps, yet i can never understand what everyhting means. My friend told me more about vb6 in 5 mins then reading tuts online. If anyone has a good free tut that your willing to share please post it. thanks.

Most tutorials don't teach programming. They teach the programming language. So all you'll learn from the majority of tutorials and books will be the programming language and how to make it do various things with examples. It is up to you to take those examples to the next level and write programs... More
