This book helps programmers understand both C++ and object-oriented design methodologies, so they can write C++ code that truly meets its potential. This comprehensive, practical tutorial has been refined through years of teaching C++ to professional developers. It covers the latest ANSI C++ features, including bool, namespaces, member templates, RTTI; explicit, export, and nothrow versions of new and delete. Detailed appendices cover the ANSI C++ IOStream Library and Standard Template Library (STL). The book shows how C++ improves on C, and clearly explains how object-oriented development is different from previous methods. It includes chapter summaries, a detailed glossary, and extensive exercises. Any professional programmer who wants to learn C++, including applications programmers, software engineers, system architects, and product maintenance personnel. This is also a comprehensive guide to C++ for computer science students.

If you're going to learn C++, learn it right! Navigating C++ and Object-Oriented Design teaches you ANSI C++ and object-oriented techniques together. This comprehensive tutorial reflects the authors' extensive experience teaching C++ to thousands of professional developers.
Through proven analogies and examples, the authors discuss such topics as containment, inheritance, overloading, templates, RTTI, exception handling, and the Standard Template Library. This book also covers the draft ANSI C++ standard -- including new features like bool, mutable, namespaces, member templates, explicit, export, auto_ptr, and nothrow versions of operator new and delete.
Along the way, try out the book's extensive exercises and take advantage of the exercise solutions and library of sample code on the accompanying CD-ROM.From the Back Cover:
Learn ANSI C++ right from the start!
If you're going to learn C++, learn it right from the start! Navigating C++ and Object-Oriented Design is the first book that teaches ANSI C++ and the object-oriented techniques that make C++ a software development breakthrough.
This comprehensive tutorial reflects the authors' extensive experience teaching C++ to professional developers. Start with the clearest introduction to object modeling you'll ever read. Then learn all the essentials of C++ and more advanced topics such as exceptions, namespaces, and dynamic memory allocation.
Next, discover C++ classes, the basic building block of object-oriented design. Through proven analogies and examples, the authors introduce containment and inheritance, overloading, templates, RTTI, and exception handling. And, the authors' unique presentation on multiple inheritance will give you invaluable insights into this complex topic.
Learn to apply C++ and object-oriented techniques to real-world development. Discover how to design classes effectively using the authors' class design boilerplate. Understand how to design container classes. Walk through class designs using the powerful OMT methodology.
Navigating C++ and Object-Oriented Design is one of the first C++ tutorials that covers in detail powerhouse ANSI C++ features like:
Why learn C++ simply as a "better C" when you can write C++ code that really meets its potential? One book shows you how: Navigating C++ and Object-Oriented Design!
