C++ Primer Answer Book

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 1999 - Computers - 430 pages

Clearly, the best way to learn C++--not just its language constructs, but how the language is actually put to use--is through problem solving and practice. Accordingly, the best-selling "C++ Primer, Third Edition", by Stanley Lippman and Josee Lajoie, presents dozens of open-ended exercises to help C++ programmers gain practical experience and acquire a deeper understanding of the language's intricacies.

But what do you do when the answer to one of these exercises baffles you? Now you can turn to the "C++ Primer Answer Book." Intended as a companion to the "C++ Primer," the "Answer Book" provides the solutions to the exercises, allowing you to learn how the masters solve critical programming challenges. With the "Answer Book" in hand, you will have the technical explanations, practical techniques, and actual code to end your frustration and help you work through solutions.

This book is completely up-to-date, covering the final ANSI/ISO C++ Standard, extensions, standard library, and the STL. The exercises and corresponding solutions address a broad range of C++ topics, including

  • Data types
  • Abstract container types
  • Generic algorithms
  • Class templates
  • Multiple and virtual inheritance
  • iostream library, and more

C++ programmers who use the "C++ Primer Answer Book" in conjunction with the "C++ Primer" will better understand the concepts of C++ by working through the exercises, and will gain new perspectives through reviewing these solutions.
