The C++ Programming Language
Written by the inventor of the language, Bjarne Stroustrup, The C++ Programming Language is the definitive, classic text on the language that has become central to software development over the past ten years. Based on the ISO final draft standard, this third edition is a complete rewrite presenting C++ and its standard library as an integrated whole. The book covers the complete C++ language including its C subset and modern features such as abstract classes, templates, exceptions, namespaces, run-time type identification, and the Standard Template Library that have revolutionized C++ development. This book does far more than merely describe every element of the language. The focus is on how to use the language as a tool for real-world design and programming. It teaches the basic concepts a programmer needs to master object-oriented programming, generic programming, and C++. In this third edition, Stroustrup makes C++ even more accessible to those new to the language while adding information and techniques that even the most experienced C++ experts find invaluable.
