Designing Components with the C++ STL: A New Approach to Programming

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 2000 - Computers - 300 pages
For C++ programmers, the ANSI C++ Standard Template Library (STL) represents a breakthrough opportunity to dramatically improve their productivity and the reliability of their software at the same time. This book introduces the STL in detail, showing how to exploit it most effectively, and teaching developers new techniques for extending the STL to the construction of powerful, optimized new components. Dr. Ulrich Breymann focuses on the heart of the ANSI C++ STL: its containers, functional objects, and especially the iterators and containers that are essential to the working of the STL's standard algorithms. With the foundation in place, he presents in-depth coverage of the library's standard algorithms, illustrating almost every one with a practical example. Section III, the majority of the book, takes Designing Components with the C++ STL far beyond any previous STL book. It offers extensive, in-depth examples and applications that use STL as a foundation for more complex data structures and algorithms, and more powerful abstract data types.
