This book is the latest edition of one of the bestselling of all books on the C++ language and Visual C++. The author, Ivor Horton, has a loyal following who love his approach to teaching programming languages. In this book, Horton repeats the formula that made the current edition so popular: he teaches both the Standard C++ language itself as well as Microsoft Visual C++. The book is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to both the Standard C++ language and to Visual C++ 2008. The book has been thoroughly updated (more than 20% updated, with 100 new pages) for the 2008 release. This book shows novice C++ programmers how to build real-world applications using Visual C++. No previous programming experience is required. The author uses numerous step-by-step programming examples to guide readers through the ins and outs of C++development. His tutorial approach has proved popular with more than 100,000 readers---they look to Ivor Horton for the most thorough and accessible introduction to the C++ language and to Visual C++. The author will fully cover new features of the 2008 release--in particular, support for the Standard Template Library. He will also enhance coverage of C++/CLI enumerations and the Unicode option; plus completely replace all screenshots to confirm with the latest look and feel of Visual Studio Orcas and Windows Vista.
