Synopses & Reviews
This book presents the library portion of the draft ANSI/ISO Standard for the programming language C++, and shows how to use all the library classes and functions mandated by that draft Standard. "Authoritative and timely, this tutorial/reference fills a void. Remarkably little has been written about the basic library that accompanies nearly every C++ translator to date; and practically "nothing" has been written on the library portion of the draft C++ standard that describes what "will" accompany all implementations of C++ in the near future. Written by the well-known author of the Standard C Library, the Draft C++ Standard will be made available publicly in February 1994. KEY TOPICS": An introductory chapter discusses how the Standard C library changes to meet the needs of C++. Then each of the 38 headers is covered using the same format: a discussion of how the specific portion of the library is customarily used, excerpts from relevant portions of the Draft, the code needed to implement the particular portion and to test the implementation, and exercises and references. For programmers familiar with the C and C++ programming languages.
