C++ From the Beginning""

covers the whole of the C++ language from simple basics to advanced language constructs. The emphasis is on building programming skills via examples and exercises, integrating object-oriented programming with object-oriented design while teaching the basics of the language.

It is a book with a dual purpose: to teach the fundamental principles of good programming, and to provide an accessible and direct introduction to C++. It is ideal for beginners taking their first programming course, and for programmers with some experience requiring a thorough introduction to the C++ language.

Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1997, the ISO standard for C++ has been approved. This new edition of the book covers the ISO standard, which incorporates a library of utility classes called the STL (Standard Template Library) not previously included in the core of C++. This book describes these new classes as well as advanced topics such as exceptions, streams, templates and function objects.

New to this edition

  • The class string and the STL class vector are used in a natural way throughout the book

  • Additional chapter on the new standard template library (STL) based on the ISO and ANSI standard of 1998

  • UML is now used in the chapter on object-oriented program development

  • Borland C++ has been replaced with Microsoft's Visual C++

  • Three new appendices have been included
