C++ is a powerful, highly flexible, and adaptable programming language that allows software engineers to organize and process information quickly and effectively.

End of chapter exercises help you ensure you've mastered the material. Practical C++ Programming thoroughly covers: * C++ Syntax * Coding standards and style * Creation and use of object classes * Templates * Debugging and optimization * Use of the C++ preprocessor * File input/output Steve Oualline's clear, easy-going writing style and hands-on approach to learning make Practical C++ Programming a nearly painless way to master this complex but powerful programming language.
