An updated edition of the nuts-and-bolts C++ introduction. Distilling C++ down to a core of fundamental data types, structures, and syntax, Cay Horstmann offers an accessible introduction to this complex language so that novices can concentrate on the essentials of programming. This new edition focuses less on ccc.h and more on ANSI standard C++ as well as on object orientation. The examples included appear in the form of complete, ready-to-run programs.

From the Publisher:

This book focuses on the programming concepts of C++ Lite, a popular subset of the C++ language. Following the recently released ANSI/ISO standard, it features coverage of the two vital additions to C++ Lite, including the string class and vector template. Discussions of these computing concepts draw on modern techniques of C++ programming by using objects and graphics. And most examples are given in the form of complete, ready-to-run programs.

From the Back Cover:

Time Is On Your Side

Whether you're a student or professor, time is really on your side with Horstmann's Computing Concepts with C++ Essentials, Second Edition. This highly accessible text introduces students to the concepts and principles of computing using a subject of C++. With its focus on problem solving, design of solutions and fundamentals of programming using ANSI standard C++, professors will quickly be able to show students how to apply these skills in developing exciting, working programs. Horstmann follows an "objects early/implement classes later" approach where students discover how to use objects early on, and later learn how to implement them. As they begin to understand these concepts, they're also develop good programming habits and a consistent style with the included programming style guide.

Special Features

  • Object-oriented features covered include the discovery and design of classes, and the concept of inheritance.
  • Students become familiar with objects, then move on to mastering fundamental programming concepts and finally tackle the implementation of classes.
  • Throughout the text, students will learn tips, tricks and traps that they'll need to know to become good programmers.
  • An optional compatibility library allows the use of ANSI features with most popular compilers.
  • The programming code from the book can be downloaded at: http://www.wiley.com/college/horstmann.
