A Tour of C++

Addison-Wesley. ISBN 978-0321958310. September 2013.

Available as eBook and on paper from the publisher

The ``tour'' is a quick (about 180 pages) tutorial overview of all of standard C++ (language and standard library) at a moderately high level for people who already know C++ or at least are experienced programmers.

Available here:

If you are looking for a more complete description of C++ and the styles of programming it supports, consider The C++ Programming Language (4th Edition).

If you are looking for an an introduction to programming for people who has never programmed before, consider Programming -- Principles and Practice Using C++. That book is also be useful for people who have programmed a bit and want to improve their style and technique - or to simply learn modern C++. It is designed for classroom use, but written with an eye on self study.


Errata

Feel free to send me suggested errata. I will fix every mistake that can be fixed within the constrains of the book. I will post every errata that I think might impede understanding.

Reviews

I don't have to agree with a review or blog post to list it, but it helps if I think at least some parts make sense.
