The Late Night Guide to C++ Nigel Chapman Did you ever stay up late into the night, working on a computer program? Not because you had to but because there was something fascinating about making that program work that was just.worth staying up for? If this sounds familiar then this book is aimed at you. In a good–humoured style, The Late Night Guide introduces C++ to the experienced programmer. It assumes no prior knowledge of the language and unlike the endless dry reference manuals has one mission: to restore the fun and excitement to jaded programmers. Completely up–to–date, it conforms to the latest published C++ standards. Starting with the simplest features of the language, The Late Night Guide to C++ develops and introduces key aspects of C++, including: object–oriented Programming, abstraction, inheritance, templates and the standard template library, exceptions, classes, pointers, arrays and more. By the end of the book the programmer will be able to write robust C++ peograms with confidence. Visit our Web Page http://www.wiley.com/compbooks/
