A Tour of C++ (C++ In-Depth Series)

By Bjarne Stroustrup

The C++11 average permits programmers to precise rules extra truly, easily, and without delay, and to write down swifter, extra effective code. Bjarne Stroustrup, the fashion designer and unique implementer of C++, completely covers the main points of this language and its use in his definitive reference, The C++ Programming Language, Fourth variation.
In A travel of C++ , Stroustrup excerpts the evaluation chapters from that whole reference, increasing and adorning them to provide an skilled programmer–in quite a few hours–a transparent proposal of what constitutes sleek C++. during this concise, self-contained advisor, Stroustrup covers such a lot significant language good points and the most important standard-library components–not, after all, in nice intensity, yet to a degree that offers programmers a significant evaluate of the language, a few key examples, and sensible assist in getting begun.

Stroustrup offers the C++ positive aspects within the context of the programming kinds they help, reminiscent of object-oriented and typical programming. His travel is remarkably complete. assurance starts with the fundamentals, then levels extensively via extra complex themes, together with many who are new in C++11, reminiscent of movement semantics, uniform initialization, lambda expressions, enhanced bins, random numbers, and concurrency. The journey ends with a dialogue of the layout and evolution of C++ and the extensions further for C++11.

This consultant doesn't objective to educate you ways to application (see Stroustrup’s Programming: ideas and perform utilizing C++ for that); nor will or not it's the one source you’ll desire for C++ mastery (see Stroustrup’s The C++ Programming Language, Fourth version, for that). If, notwithstanding, you're a C or C++ programmer short of larger familiarity with the present C++ language, or a programmer versed in one other language wishing to realize a correct photograph of the character and advantages of contemporary C++, you can’t discover a shorter or easier creation than this travel presents.
