For Introduction to Programming (CS1) and other more intermediate courses covering programming in C++. Also appropriate as a supplement for upper-level courses where the instructor uses a book as a reference for the C++ language.This best-selling comprehensive text is aimed at readers with little or no programming experience. It teaches programming by presenting the concepts in the context of full working programs and takes and early objects approach. The text has an emphasis on achieving program clarity through structured and object-oriented programming, software reuse and component-oriented software construction. The Sixth Edition reflects the suggested improvements of a distinguished team of industry professionals and academics.
