Overview

Exceptionally organized and beautifully illustrated, this state-of-the-art guide to C++ programming is a must-have for anyone who needs to learn the language. Exploring C++ programming's most useful aspects (as well as some of its more specialized parts), it focuses on using the language to write practical programs based on sound design techniques. Presents the must up-to-date coverage of C++ available - including a full section on STL (standard template library) - and offers many well-constructed examples, useful self-test exercises, beautifully fashioned sample applications, interesting and applicable programming exercises, lists of common programming errors, C++ Postscript sections that explain esoteric and less-used parts of the language, stunning illustrations, and up-to-date features. Includes a supplemental IBM-format program disk; a companion website contains the sourcecode, header files, and data files found on the disk as well as transparencies and an errata list.
