Based on the successful first edition, Secrets of the C++ Masters (1995), this book provides a path to true C++ enlightenment. It has been carefully revised to thoroughly cover advanced programming techniques using C++. It includes valuable techniques organized into three categories: Smart Pointers, Class Hierarchies, and Memory Management, and includes applications-oriented coverage of numerous topics including template creation, exception handling, pointers, optimization, and types. The focus of the book is on ANSI C++, and it includes one 3.5" disk for Windows that features all the source code for examples presented in the book.
* A revision of the highly acclaimed Secrets of the C++ Masters
* Bridges the gap between C++ as described in beginner and intermediate-level books and C++ as practiced by experts
* Valuable techniques are described and organized into three simple themes: indirection, class hierarchies, and memory management
* Provides in depth coverage of template creation, exception handling, pointers and optimization techniques
* Book focuses in ANSI C++ and so is compiler independent
* Includes a 3.5" disk for Windows with source code of all examples in the book

Praise for the First Edition, SECRETS OF THE C++ MASTERS
". . .The next five chapters are the most comprehensive development of 'smart pointers' that I have yet come across. This, or something like it should be compulsory reading for all who are going to program in an exception handling environment. The book would be worth buying for the last section alone but the next section . . . handling concepts of dispatch, multiple dispatch, and factory classes adds jam to it. . . . this book is an excellent starting point for those who have ambitions to becoming master technicians with C++."
--CVU, JOURNAL OF THE ASSOCIATION OF C/C++ USERS
"Alger . . . shows off the power of C++ to provide compact implementations of difficult areas . . . The coverage in all areas is thorough . . ."
"This book is written by one of the legends of object oriented technology . . . [it] is written in a clear and witty style, and the author often sees the lighter side of the language. It is a book that is really for people who have been programming in the language for several years and want to improve their knowledge of some of the intricacies and advanced features of the language. . . . The information is well organized and is ideal for self study."
