This text covers the whole of C++ language, from the basics to advanced language constructs, teaching the fundamental principles of programming and providing an accessible introduction to C++. It should prove useful both to beginners and those requiring a thorough presentation of C++.
C++ From the Beginning covers the whole of the C++ language from simple basics to advanced language constructs. The emphasis is on building programming skills via examples and exercises, integrating object-oriented programming with object-oriented design while teaching the basics of the language. It is a book with a dual purpose: to teach the fundamental principles of good programming, and to provide an accessible and direct introduction to C++. It is ideal for beginners taking their first programming course, and for programmers with some experience requiring a thorough introduction to the C++ language. Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1997, the ISO standard for C++ has been approved. This new edition of the book covers the ISO standard. The standard incorporates a library of utility classes called the STL (Standard Template Library) not previously included in the core of C++. This book describes these new classes as well as advanced topics such as exceptions, streams, templates and function objects.
Author Info: Jan Skansholm is a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is the author of the bestselling Ada95 from the Beginning, and Java from the Beginning.
