Other publications

This book is not intended to be an introduction to the C or C++ programming languages. It does not try to teach programming in C or C++, and it is not a reference manual for the C or C++ standards. Other books provide general information about programming.

The following publications describe the C++ language:

  • ISO/IEC 14882:2003, C++ Standard.

  • Stroustrup, B., The C++ Programming Language (3rd edition, 1997). Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, Reading, Massachusetts. ISBN 0-201-88954-4.

The following books provide general C++ programming information:

  • Stroustrup, B., The Design and Evolution of C++ (1994). Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, Reading, Massachusetts. ISBN 0-201-54330-3.

    This book explains how C++ evolved from its first design to the language in use today.

  • Vandevoorde, D and Josuttis, N.M. C++ Templates: The Complete Guide (2003). Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, Reading, Massachusetts. ISBN 0-201-73484-2.

  • Meyers, S., Effective C++ (1992). Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, Reading, Massachusetts. ISBN 0-201-56364-9.

    This provides short, specific, guidelines for effective C++ development.

  • Meyers, S., More Effective C++ (2nd edition, 1997). Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, Reading, Massachusetts. ISBN 0-201-92488-9.

The following publications provide general C programming information:

  • ISO/IEC 9899:1999, C Standard.

    The standard is available from national standards bodies (for example, AFNOR in France, ANSI in the USA).

  • Kernighan, B.W. and Ritchie, D.M., The C Programming Language (2nd edition, 1988). Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA. ISBN 0-13-110362-8.

    This is the original C bible, updated to cover the essentials of ANSI C.

  • Harbison, S.P. and Steele, G.L., A C Reference Manual (5th edition, 2002). Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA. ISBN 0-13-089592-X.

    This is a very thorough reference guide to C, including useful information on ANSI C.

  • Plauger, P., The Standard C Library (1991). Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA. ISBN 0-13-131509-9.

    This is a comprehensive treatment of ANSI and ISO standards for the C Library.

  • Koenig, A., C Traps and Pitfalls, Addison-Wesley (1989), Reading, Mass. ISBN 0-201-17928-8.

    This explains how to avoid the most common traps in C programming. It provides informative reading at all levels of competence in C.
