Object Oriented Programming in C++by Nicolai M. Josuttis
Synopses & Reviews
C++ is now established as one of the leading industry programming languages for object-oriented software development. Its advantages over other languages include speed and flexibility. It is used as the base for many commercial software products and for performance solutions to complex problems. Not often taught as the primary programming language, students are frequently expected to pick up the language for themselves. This book is an ideal student self-learning guide.
As a step-by-step tutorial, this book teaches all language features and explains their practical usage. Intuitive examples are used that are neither too complex to distract, nor oversimplified. A key concept in C++ is programming with templates, which can help to program generic solutions - for example implementing polymorphism. Nicolai Josuttis teaches how to combine templates with object-oriented programming to produce the power of modern C++ development for high performance programs. It is a book that goes well beyond the basics.

* comprehensive, detailed, readable, practical and up-to-date
* teaches how to get the power from C++, using the current ANSI language standard and programming mode
* specific hints help C and Java programmers switch and compare languages.
* website provides more examples and links to useful online resources.
Book News Annotation:
This introduction to the C++ language explains how to use and combine classes to create a C++ program, then addresses the design and implementation of classes and class hierarchies. The advantages offered by templates and the standard library are clarified in the final section. While the concepts are explained well, a familiarity with the programming process is recommended. Originally published in German as by Addison-Wesley.

"...technically solid, excellent introduction to C++..." (Cvu, December 2002)
Objektorientierte Programmierung in C++: Hier werden Sie Schritt für Schritt mit den Grundzügen, aber auch mit fortgeschrittenen Aspekten vertraut gemacht! Alle Sprachmerkmale werden im Zusammenhang mit der praktischen Anwendung besprochen. Ein Schlüsselkonzept von C++ zur Implementierung generischer Algorithmen ist die Programmierung mit Templates. Wie man Templates mit objektorientierter Programmierung verknüpft, um die Möglichkeiten der Sprache zur Erstellung hochperformanter Programme zu nutzen, wird hier gezeigt.
