Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The inventor of C++ presents the definitive insider's guide to the design and development of the C++ programming language. Without ommitting critical details or getting bogged down in technicalities, Stroustrup presents his unique insights into the decisions that shaped C++. Every C++ programmer will benefit from Stroustrup's explanations of the 'why's' behind C++ from the earliest features, such as the original class concept, to the latest extensions, such as new casts and explicit template instantiation.

Some C++ design decisions have been universally praised, while others remain controversial, and debated vigorously; still other features have been rejected based on experimentation. In this book, Stroustrup dissects many of these decisions to present a case study in "real object- oriented language development" for the working programmer. In doing so, he presents his views on programming and design in a concrete and useful way that makes this book a must-buy for every C++ programmer. Features

  • Written by the inventor of C++ Stroustrup
  • Provides insights into the design decisions which shaped C++.
  • Gives technical summaries of C++.
  • Discusses the latest language features: templates, exceptions, run-time type information, and namespaces.
  • Presents Stroustrup's unique programming and design views.

Book News Annotation:

The designer of C++ recounts its development, dissecting the decisions made in the creation of the language to present a case study in real object-oriented development for the working programmer. In doing so, he presents his views on programming and design in a concrete and useful way. Topics include a prehistory of C++, C with classes, C++ language design rules, standardization, libraries, memory management, multiple inheritance, casting, templates, and exception handling.
