This book which treats C++, one of the most widely used programming languages of today, and object-oriented programming (OOP) paradigm, has been well received by the readers, and this enthusiastic response has prompted the author to bring out this second edition. This revised and updated new edition takes into account the recent trends in C++ and OOP. The book continues to give an overview of programming as well as an introduction to basic object-oriented (OO) concepts and elements of C. It also provides the standard and advanced features of C++ for further study. The text establishes the philosophy of OOP by highlighting the core features of C++ and demonstrating the semantic differences between C as a procedural paradigm and the object-oriented paradigm of C++. This new edition updates and elaborates on the following topics: Reference data types Inline functions Two's complement representation of signed numbers Parameter passing-passing pointers by value as well as by reference Polymorphism Searching and sorting algorithms Implementation of linked list Phases of software development UML Primarily intended as a text for undergraduate students of engineering (B.Tech.), undergraduate and postgraduate students of computer applications (BCA/MCA), and postgraduate students of management, the book should also prove to be a stimulating study for all those who have a keen interest in the subject.
