C++ Primer, Third Edition, combines the practical experience and writing of Stanley Lippman, and the inside knowledge of the ANSI/ISO Standards Draft from Josee Lajoie. Completely rewritten, this tutorial is driven by examples which help the novice C++ programmer solve problems in terms of choice of language features, implementation, and efficiency. Programming aspects of the language are presented in the context of solving a particular problem or programming task. Language rules are given both to clearly introduce the rule and provide a reference to it. The book covers the new C++ Standard Library, including extensive treatment of what was formerly known as the Standard Template Library (STL), as well as the string and complex class types. It also examines the new language features introduced into the International Standard, such as Exception Handling, Run-Time Type Identification, Namespaces, the built-in bool type, and new-style cast-notation.

This new edition of C++ Primer, a favorite choice for a first C++ book, has been greatly improved with the latest and greatest on C++, stressing the built-in language features of the C++ Standard Library. For this new version--weighing in at a massive 1,237 pages--Stanley Lippman, a well-known C++ expert, teams up with Josée Lajoie, who has helped define the C++ international language standard. The new material is excellent for programmers who want to get the most out of new and advanced features in the language.
The authors still introduce the basics of C++, including data types and pointers, but quickly move on to stress how to get the most out of the built-in features of ISO-standard C++. Throughout this book built-in support for the C++ Standard Library, such as container classes like vectors and maps, and other standard features, such as the string class, are integrated into a tried-and- proven basic-language tutorial.
The major new features of C++ (templates, name spaces, and run-time type identification) all get their due. The result is an authoritative guide to basic and advanced C++ in a clear and readable style, with plenty of short, practical examples throughout the text. The book includes exercises--some quite challenging--for every section: a perfect choice both for self-study and the classroom. --Richard DraganFrom the Publisher:
The third edition of the C++ Primer combines Stanley Lippman's practical experience with Jose Lajoie's inside knowledge of the ANSI/ISO Standard C++. This tutorial is rewritten to describe the features and programming usage of Standard C++. Especially useful for developers new to C++ are the many real-world programming examples that illustrate the design of generic and object-oriented programs, the use of templates, and other aspects of program design using Standard C++. In addition, the C++ Primer provides usage and efficiency guidelines where appropriate.
Highlights * Clear, practical and example-driven coverage of the Standard Library, with emphasis on the containers, iterators and algorithms (also known as the Standard Template Library), the string class and iostreams * A detailed look at the new features of Standard C++; exception handling, run-time type identification, namespaces, the built-in bool type, and new-style cast-notation, with advice on how to effectively use them. * A thorough introduction of the advanced language features, such as templates, classes, and inheritance in support of generic programming, object-oriented programming and object-based programming. * An appendix that can be used as a quick reference for the generic algorithms, describing their behavior, and providing concrete examples of how to use them.
