CAIRO BOOKS's Description
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.
