The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference

5.0 von 5 Sternen As good as it gets, 28. Januar 2000
On my second reading, I'm still finding more gems in this book. Up to now, it was almost impossible to find any comprehensive material on the standard library. All one could find was the odd article about some aspect of the library, or rather specialized books about STL. Nicolai has fixed that particular problem once and for all.
The book reminds of Richard Stevens's famous UNIX books. Incredibly complete, incredibly detailed, incredibly accurate, and a great tutorial and reference at the same time. And, best of all, it's just as accessible to someone who is not a real expert as it is for someone who's been using C++ for years.
This is one of the *very* few books that get a spot on my top shelf. A classic that I will come back to again and again.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essential C++ (C++ in Depth) (Taschenbuch)
I was rather skeptical when I first heard of this book. After all, explaining C++ in anything less than 500 or 600 pages seemed impossible.
I was very pleasantly surprised when I started reading though. This is very down-to-earth and crystal-clear reading. Easy to understand and, most importantly, you won't get overwhelmed by the sheer size of the mountain ahead of you. Naturally, you can't expect this book to turn you into a C++ guru. But that isn't its purpose. (Besides, there are *no* books that will turn you into a guru, only books that are more complete, including Stan's own C++ Primer.)
This book is excellent for *learning* C++ and getting off the ground. It achieves this goal better than any other C++ book I've read. Once you've read this book, you can graduate to more advanced material, such as the C++ Primer (which is didactically very good) or Stroustrup's book (which is didactically nowhere near as good, but works better as a reference due to its
terseness). "Essential C++" provides very solid C++ grounding without neglecting any of the important parts of the language.
Highly recommended!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply exceptional!, 6. Dezember 1999
I just received the book and ended up reading it in a single sitting. Outstanding! This book is is a veritable treasure trove of tips, tricks, gotchas, and very solid design advice. You need to know C++ fairly well to follow all the subtleties but if you meet this prerequisite, you will find yourself referring to this book time and time again. The sections on exception safety are particularly valuable. Highly recommended!


The Limits of Software: People, Projects, and Perspectives
The Limits of Software: People, Projects, and Perspectives
von Robert N. Britcher
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, 27. Juli 1999
I started reading this book over dinner, couldn't put it down, and ended up finishing it that night. Britcher presents a perspective on computing that is refreshingly different from the usual technocratic point of view. It is nice to see someone who worries about the ethics of this industry for a change, and who doesn't subscribe to the idea that if something is computerized, it must automatically be better. Lot's of thoughtful comments about the state of the industry, software engineering, management, and the psychology and ethics of computing.
Highly recommended!


Generic Programming and the STL: Using and Extending the C++ Standard Template Library (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing)
Generic Programming and the STL: Using and Extending the C++ Standard Template Library (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing)
von Matthew H. Austern
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 56,07

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, 16. Juli 1999
This is a great companion to Musser & Saini. I particularly enjoyed the in-depth explanations of the motivation for why things are the way they are. Instead of simply explaining how to use the STL, Austern explains how and why it works. This becomes particularly important if you want to extend the STL with algorithms or containers of your own because Austern shows how to it correctly, so that things will *really* work.
The language and explanations in the book are clear, precise, and to the point. An excellent companion to Musser & Saini.
