COOKING WITH C++!!
Are you a C++ programmer? If you are, then this book is for you. Authors D. Ryan Stephens, Christopher Diggins, Jonathan Turkanis and Jeff Cogswell, have done an outstanding job of writing a book about solving common problems with C++, but not a book about learning C++. Stephens, Diggins, Turkanis and Cogswell, begin by showing you recipes that contain recipes for transforming C++ source code into executable programs and libraries. Then, the authors show you recipes that describe techniques that you apply from within header files. Next, they show you solutions to common problems when working with C++¿s numeric types. The authors also show you recipes for working with strings and text files. They continue with an overview of how to manipulate dates and times. Then, the authors describe the data structures in the standard library that you can use to store data. Next, they describe how to work with the standard algorithms and how to use them on the standard containers. The authors also show you solutions to common problems related to working with C++ classes. They continue by showing you recipes for using C++¿s exception-handling features. Then, the authors present an overview of streams and files. Next, they provide you with solutions to common numerical programming problems and demonstrate how to use generic programming techniques to write numerical code effectively. The authors also describe how to write multithreaded programs in C++ using the Boost Threads library. They continue by describing solutions to some common requirements when internationalizing C++ programs. Then, the authors present an overview of XML. Finally, they describe a few facets of C++ that do not actually fit neatly into any of the other chapters: Function and member pointers, const variables and member functions, and standalone operators and a few other topics. Throughout this most excellent book, the authors give real life solutions that reflect the current best practices in C++ programming. More importantly, they focus on performance and portability, with a strong emphasis on formal and ad hoc standards.

C++ Cookbook, the best C++ guide ¿
When I get a C++ Cookbook to my hand I think what I find in this book? I learn C++ from a much books, and everything it¿s very boring and hardly to learn. My first travel to C++ world with this book is very, very good and I love this book. C++ Cookbook is very friendly and easy to learn, full guide for all people who¿s interesting get a professional information about programming in this language. Four authors in good, practice chapters summary all main and additional programming techniques for C++. All topics illustrated with useful examples from real world. C++ Cookbook have very useful format, all chapters presented problem, detail describe solution and discuss about potential problem and possibilities to quick resolve all hardly point in C++ programming. I think this is the best method to learn for all people, from hobbyst who¿s interesting to discover features in C++ and easy learn to professional who¿s interesting find all required information for realize real-world problem at the C++ solutions. Additional C++ Cookbooks is good pocket reference all features and functions C++ language. You can easily find short information about every features in general C++ language and additional standard libraries. Absolutly great and useful for all people! With this book You can quickly learn C++ and going from novice to professional C++ developer. With this book You can to the TechED events and become a C++ speaker , seriously!Was this review helpful?
