Exceptionally organized and beautifully illustrated, this state-of-the-art guide to C++ programming is a must-have for anyone who needs to learn the language. Exploring C++ programming's most useful aspects (as well as some of its more specialized parts), it focuses on using the language to write practical programs based on sound design techniques. KEY TOPICS:Presents the must up-to-date coverage of C++ available - including a full section on STL (standard template library) - and offers many well-constructed examples, useful self-test exercises, beautifully fashioned sample applications, interesting and applicable programming exercises, lists of common programming errors, C++ Postscript sections that explain esoteric and less-used parts of the language, stunning illustrations, and up-to-date features. Includes a supplemental IBM-format program disk; a companion website contains the sourcecode, header files, and data files found on the disk as well as transparencies and an errata list.
