There are almost as many programming languages these days as there are dialects at a Washington cocktail party. Among them all, however, C++ remains a favorite, especially for beginners. C++ is fast, powerful, fully compiled, and portable. If you’ve thought about learning programming, it’s a great place to start. And if you’re already experienced with C++, you probably know a well-organized reference guide makes a programmer’s life a lot easier.
C++ All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies is a guide that grows with you. It’s organized into seven convenient minibooks, each devoted to a particular aspect of C++. So whether you’re a beginner just learning the lingo, or a veteran who wants to find out how to write a Web service in C++ .NET by using the Managed Extension to C++ (and who actually knows what that means!) you can find the answers quickly and easily.
If you’re about to venture into C++ programming for the first time, Minibook I begins at the beginning and covers all the basic stuff you need to know. You’ll be ready to join the big kids when you reach the subsequent minibooks, which cover
- Understanding objects and classes, including UML and design patterns
- Fixing problems, debugging your code, and choosing a good debugger
- Advanced C++ programming
- Reading and writing files, with coverage of stream programming
- C++ .NET, which shows you how to program for Microsoft’s latest product, create Web services, build assemblies, and more
- Visual Studio 6.0 and MFC, featuring a discussion of writing software for Windows with Microsoft Foundation classes
No matter how accomplished a C++ programmer you are – or aren’t – there will always be times when you need a reference guide. C++ All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies gets you started with C++ programming, takes you as far as you want to go, and makes it easy to find out more whenever you want.
