More than three-quarters of a million programmers have benefited from this book in all of its editions

Written by Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++, this is the world's most trusted and widely read book on C++.

For this special hardcover edition, two new appendixes on locales and standard library exception safety (also available at www.research.att.com/~bs/) have been added. The result is complete, authoritative coverage of the C++ language, its standard library, and key design techniques. Based on the ANSI/ISO C++ standard, The C++ Programming Language provides current and comprehensive coverage of all 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
  • C compatibility, internationalization, and exception safety
Bjarne Stroustrup makes C++ even more accessible to those new to the language, while adding advanced information and techniques that even expert C++ programmers will find invaluable.

User Review  - Volodymyr - Goodreads

Quick tip: Never use this book as your first C++ book. It's pretty cool to read it when you feel yourself comfortable with the basics of the language. The book itself is quite chaotic and paragraphs ... Read full review
