Book News Annotation:

This handbook describes and offers some examples of the keywords, syntax, functions, classes, and features that are used in the Standard C++ programming language. Little has changed from the last edition, aside from some added detail to the coverage or modernization of description. An appendix covers the extended keywords used by Microsoft for the creation of managed code for the .NET Framework.
