Setting up a camera system to use with OpenCV


Probably a dumb/basic question, apologies in advance.

I want to buy a standard webcam, say something like this:;jsessionid=3665222F1C297C76927E29F770068174.bbolsp-app02-163?id=1218337862339&skuId=2588445

Then I want to connect it to my laptop and use OpenCV to analyze its video feed to run CV algorithms with. What do I need to do to get started with this task? Just the set-up so in my C++ code I have the video stream available to analyze. Is there some basic template code I could get started with?
