  • Continued critical acclaim in October 1995 Dr. Dobb's

Written by an expert in C++, Advanced C++ Programming Styles and Idioms looks at the design features of the C++ programming language. Assuming a background in the syntax of C++, Coplien shows how to become an expert C++ programmer by learning the idioms of the language. His approach is organized around the abstractions that C++ supports: abstract data types, combining types in inheritance structures, object-oriented programming, and multiple inheritance. Using small, but rich examples, he shows how these abstractions can be combined to use the language effectively. Experienced C++ programmers will appreciate the comprehensive coverage of Release 3.0.

Book News Annotation:

Assuming a background in C++ basics, this book helps programmers to develop their programming expertise by giving a feel for the styles and idioms of the language. The approach is organized around the abstractions that C++ supports: abstract data types, combining types in inheritance structures, object-oriented programming, and multiple inheritance. Also explored are idioms that the core of the C++ language does not support directly, such as virtual constructors, prototype objects, and advanced garbage collection techniques.

About the Author

James O. Coplien is a premier expert and writer on the object paradigm and C++, having worked with the language since its inception at AT&T. Currently a member of Bell Laboratories Research at Lucent Technologies, his work focuses on multi-paradigm development methods and organizational anthropology for software development processes. His previous books include Pattern Languages of Program Design (with Douglas C. Schmidt), Pattern Languages of Program Design, Volume 2 (with John M. Vlissides and Norman L. Kerth), and Advanced C++ Programming Styles and Idioms.
