Sams Teach Yourself C++ in One Hour a Day is the latest version of our long-time best-seller Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days, which has already taught more than 250,000 programmers how to use C++. This edition has been revised to reflect the latest C++ standards and compilers, and contains substantially expanded coverage of today's C++ Standard Template Library (STL). Replete with thoroughly explained code and syntax examples, it is the broadest and deepest introductory C++ tutorial available: simply the best book for readers who are serious about truly mastering C++. Improved throughout, this edition starts with a clearer, more example-rich introduction, and contains new material previewing the forthcoming C++0x standard. Coverage includes: * Understanding the anatomy of a C++ program * Core language features: variables, constants, strings, arrays, expressions, statements, operators, functions, pointers, references, and more * Fundamentals of modern object-oriented programming with C++, from classes and objects to macros and templates * STL basics: String Class, Dynamic Array Classes, Lists, Sets, Multisets, Maps, and Multimaps * Even more STL: Function Objects, Algorithms, Adaptive Containers, and Bit Flags * Advanced C++: Smart Pointers, streams, exception handling, preprocessing, and more
