Second Edition now available! This book is inspired by the popularity of the electronic FAQ, originally prepared and disseminated by Marshall Cline and available on the Internet at comp.lang.c++. The direct question and answer format makes it easy for readers to quickly find the information they are looking for. This book contains four to five times the material of the electronic FAQ: new questions and answers have been added, existing questions have been extensively revised, comprehensive examples illustrate key points and provide practical guidelines for programmers, and thorough cross referencing makes this book a professional guidebook. The authors go beyond simply answering questions, they present a clear philosophy that promotes high quality C++ programming. The authors combine a lively, straightforward style with just enough humor to make the book accessible to the beginning C++ programmer, and a valuable reference for the experienced C++ developer. 0201589583B04062001Cline, Marshall P. is the author of 'C++ Faqs' with ISBN 9780201589580 and ISBN 0201589583.
