Summary

C++ In Plain English Second Edition Add the object-oriented power of C++ to your programming portfolio -- and watch your career take off! Fully revised to cover the new ANSI C++ spec, Overland's classic book helps you crack the C++ language barrier with expert tips, sample code, and straight-forward explanations of each function, class, and keyword. C++ In Plain English If you know the task you want to perform, but don't know its name, check out the list of common tasks and their corresponding keywords. C++ A to Z If you know the name of the element, but have forgotten whether it's a keyword or a library function, turn to the speedy alphabetical cross-reference. C++ Answers If you want more information about advanced concepts, C/C++ compatibility, or an overview of new ANSI features, get the answers in the glossary and appendices. www.idgbooks.com
