Overview

NOTE: Customers of this book, Errata for page 833 is now available in pdf form and can be downloaded from this page.

This is a complete rewrite of the most widely read and most trusted book on C++. Based on the ANSI/ISO C++ final draft, this book covers the C++ language, its standard library, and key design techniques as an integrated whole.

The C++ Programming Language provides comprehensive coverage of C++ language features and standard library components. For example:

  • abstract classes as interfaces
  • class hierarchies for object-oriented programming
  • templates as the basis for type-safe generic software
  • exceptions for regular error handling
  • namespaces for modularity in large-scale software
  • run-time type identification for loosely coupled systems
  • the C subset of C++ for C compatibility and system-level work
  • standard containers and algorithms
  • standard strings, I/O streams, and numerics

With this third edition, Stroustrup makes C++ even more accessible to those new to the language while adding information and techniques that even expert C++ programmers will find invaluable.

I am a student, entering my junior year of college, and this summer, I'm on internship with Hewlett Packard. My mentor lent me a ton of books to refer to while working on my project, and I also went to the company library and got some books on my own; however NONE of them come close to comparing to THIS book!! I haven't taken c++ in about a year, and my recent classes have dealt with other aspects of computer science where I haven't needed to use my c++. The last language I learned was PERL which as you all know is the total opposite as far as syntax, etc.. However, this book is soooooooooo valuable. It is simple enough for me to understand, while at the same time, it is extremely thorough!! Great examples and explainations... Especially good for the programmer who hasn't looked at c++ in a while, and just needs a refresher. I recommend this book for EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY STUDENTS... I'm going to go out and get my own because I can see it's an EXTREMELY VALUABLE information source!!!
