Today's languages have new capabilities, creating new questions on how the components should fit together. Using a learn-by-example approach, Cargill presents code from published sources--each example representing a common error made by C++ programmers--and shows readers how to critically examine and rewrite it.

A great intro and guideline for C++ style. Most of the chapters open with code that solves a particular problem, then goes on to evolve a much better solution, pointing out nice C++ idioms and alternatives along the way. In the spirit of Kernighan and Plauger's, "The Elements of Programming".
