Essential C++

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 2000 - Computers - 276 pages
Finally, there's a great introduction to ANSI C++ for working programmers! Stanley B. Lippman -- who worked under the leadership of Bjarne Stroustrup, wrote the classic C++ Primer, and now works as a C++ programmer at Dream Works -- teaches programmers exactly what they need to know to get immediate results. Lippman begins with an overview of the ANSI C++ language, in the context of a small program that illustrates built-in data types, predefined operators, vector and string library classes, conditional and looping statements, and the iostream library. Next, readers design and use functions, and review the types of functions supported by C++. Lippman introduces the Standard Template Library; then walks through the design and use of the C++ class facility to create data types specific to any application domain. Learn how to extend class design to support families of related classes in object hierarchies; build class templates; and finally, use the C++ exception handling facility. From start to finish, each concept and technique is presented through real programs designed to solve the problems C++ programmers are most likely to encounter.
-- Get your code working and learn the language at the same time!
-- Expert coverage of moving from procedural to object-oriented development, with specific examples and solutions..
-- By the #1 C++ author, Stanley B. Lippman, whose classic C++ Primer is recognized as "required reading for every C++ programmer".
