From the Back Cover

The complete, authoritative DEITEL LIVE-CODE introduction to C++, Object-Oriented Design (OOD) with the UML and Web programming with CGI.

This Fourth Edition of the world's most widely used C++ textbook explains C++'s extraordinary capabilities, presents an optional object-oriented design and implementation case study with the Unified Modeling Language (UML) from the Object Management Group, and introduces n-tier Web-applications development with CGI.

Dr. Harvey M. Deitel and Paul J. Deitel are the founders of Deitel & Associates, Inc., the internationally recognized corporate-training and content-creation organization specializing in C++, C, Visual C++® .NET, Java, C#, Visual Basic® .NET, XML, Python, Perl, Internet, Web, .NET and object technologies. The Deitels are the authors of several of the world's best-selling programming-language textbooks, including Java How to Program, 4/e, and Internet & World Wide Web How to Program, 2/e.

In C++ How to Program, 4/e, the Deitels introduce the fundamentals of object-oriented programming and generic programming in C++. Key topics include:

  • Control structures/Functions/Pointers
  • Classes/Objects/Encapsulation
  • OOP/inheritance/Polymorphism
  • Object-Oriented Design with the UML
  • string and vector objects
  • Pointer-based arrays and strings
  • Exception handling/Operator overloading
  • Templates/Data structures/Files/Streams
  • Standard Template Library (STL)
  • Bit and character manipulation
  • Namespaces/Run-Time Type Information
  • N-tier Web applications/CGI/XHTMLTM

C++ How to Program, 4/e, helps students build real-world C++ applications. It includes:

  • Hundreds of LIVE-CODE programs with screen captures that show exact outputs
  • Extensive Internet and World Wide Web resources to encourage further research
  • Hundreds of tips, recommended practices and cautions―all marked with icons

C++ How to Program's teaching resources include Web sites (, and with the book's code examples (also on the enclosed CD) and information for faculty, students and professionals; an optional CD (C++ Multimedia Cyber Classroom, 4/e) with solutions to approximately half the exercises in C++ How to Program, 4/e, interactivity features―including hyperlinks and audio walkthroughs of the code examples.
