Excellent learning resource,
By A Customer
This review is from: "Sams Teach Yourself C++ Programming for Linux in 21 Days" (Paperback)
... this is an excellent introductory text which does exactly what it says on the cover. If you lack any previous programming experience it explains the basic concepts clearly and concisely - it also reads well, with the author explaining more difficult concepts from a number of different angles. I have found that this book has given me a solid grounding in c++.Whether you are just beginning or already have some experience programming, you will find that this book's clear organization makes learning C++ fast and easy.
This book does not teach you how to use or install Linux, although a copy is included on the CD-ROM. There are plenty of other good books for that purpose (like the Sams Linux Unleashed series).
C++ (like the C language before it) is a standard language, so it is the same core language under Linux as on other platforms. In other words, the C++ you learn from this book applies to many different systems and compilers.
