This is a complete rewrite of the most widely read and most trusted book on C++. Based on the ANSI/ISO C++ final draft, this book covers the C++ language, its standard library, and key design techniques as an integrated whole.

The C++ Programming Language provides comprehensive coverage of C++ language features and standard library components. For example:

  • abstract classes as interfaces
  • class hierarchies for object-oriented programming
  • templates as the basis for type-safe generic software
  • exceptions for regular error handling
  • namespaces for modularity in large-scale software
  • run-time type identification for loosely coupled systems
  • the C subset of C++ for C compatibility and system-level work
  • standard containers and algorithms
  • standard strings, I/O streams, and numerics

With this third edition, Stroustrup makes C++ even more accessible to those new to the language while adding information and techniques that even expert C++ programmers will find invaluable.

There is absolutely no doubt that Bjarne Stroustrup's The C++ Programming Language, Third Edition is a must-have book. If you are programming in C++, you will refer to it every other day. If you are learning C++, you need to dedicate time to read one chapter a week. This third edition is much more approachable than its predecessors and has gems of insight sprinkled throughout. Furthermore, it includes a good introduction to Standard Template Libraries (STL) and describes the various new C++ features...the book is very well done, and we thank Bjarne Stroustrup for his tireless effort for over a decade to improve the lives of programmers.
