CGI: Internet Programming in C++ and C
CGI: Internet Programming in C++ and C
von Mark Felton

5.0 von 5 Sternen Until the better one come out, this is one of the best, 25. Juni 2000
I am one of C++ programmers who had been writting C++ codes for years. Recently, I have to write web programming (called CGI programs), and I don't want to learn a new language like Perl or Tcl... So, I wondered around everywhere finding any book that could give me any idea about how to write CGI programs in C/C++, and luckily, I found this book.
While not perfect (from my experience with over 20 C++ books, none is perfect), this book does what it should. Although a lot of codes won't compile without some modification (compiler depends... I compiled them using g++ on IRIX platform, check yours). Anyway, I found it challenging to find bugs in his code, since that helped my understanding of several things (but without bugs is better anyway :-).
Apart from that problems, there are also other drawback points. The most important one is, the author's e-mail address! I was trying to send some mails to ask him some question. However, it seems that the address is wrong.. (although I checked that in the book's homepage!). Well, if anyone know his correct e-mail address, would you please send me that information?
However, I do agree with some reviewers about the price of this book. It should be much cheaper, when consider about the size of the book, and (it is paperback cover..). Anyway, since books for CGI programming in C/C++ are rare, it might be considerable fine....
And why I still gave this book 5 stars? Well, as I said, from my opinion this is one of the best for CGI programming "without" Perl & Tcl book. At least until the better one come out.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Isn't that good... Doesn't live up to its hype, 21. Juni 2000
To be honest, I have to tell you something. I did not read every lines written in this book, and I haven't read the entire book yet.
However, from my years of living with C++ codes (5 years should be long enough, I think), I think I know C++ enough without doing that (read every lines of the entire book..etc)
Now, many people asked me to teach C++... and I was looking for a good textbook. I came in Amazon and read some reviews about this book, and I think I should try reading it.. (and it was published from Addison-Wesley, my favourite computer-book publisher). The following are my feeling about the book :
First, when I look at the very first source code, I had a bad feeling about that. What? Well, it included the "classic-but-old" .h header file. This is still OK a year ago. But as the standard for C++ had been finalized, ... this book wasn't written in the "Standard" C++, but the "pre-standard" one! (And whoever learn to code from this one will suffer from somethings that are available in Std C++, but weren't there in the earlier C++)
Next, I, personally, don't like the approach that the author used. I mean, using some low-level programming, like using char* (or char[]), instead of a better string class (at least until page 619)...and array instead of vector.. etc. I would never do that if I have to teach someone C++ (at least, Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++, said the same thing. Please refer to his homepage for more information).
Well, one next thing that quite unacceptable for me is that, this book did not mention STL (Standard Template Library), which is a essential part of the ANSI/ISO C++ now. And the containers, algorithms, and things in STL had already take programming in C++ into next era. And those who don't know/understand STL will be left-behind. (Well, the author did use the string class... however, the string class (actually, basic_string) is not a part of the STL).
One more thing, which I found in the last chapter about inheritance. The author didn't make the base class destructor virtual when it is intended to support polymorphic hierarchy (in a pet example, page 844-845).
Believe me, there are much better books around (at least on my shelf :-)

The Waite Group's C++, w. CD-ROM (How-to Series)
von Jan Walter

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good book. Very good approach., 5. Juni 2000
First, I like the approach of this book. The "How could I do ... ?" is good for refresh your memory. Since sometime you might forget, or become unsure about how something can be done.
Despite what it said in the back cover, I think that, this book is suitable for the someone who is about to become an intermediate C++ programmer (the advanced-beginner, or something like that). Why? Because when I was one, I always get confused about "How could I do <something>", or "How should I involve <some facilities>", and this book provided almost all answer to those questions I used to have. And even now, it still worth my time reading it.
The code examples are very easy to understand. However, I found that each author's programming style are quite different. This is fine for someone who already has his/her own style. But for someone who doesn't, this might lead to confusion, and bad programming style (mixed style) later on.
Also, one thing... I found that in (almnost?) all code, main() return void, which is not correct. According to the Standard, main() should return int for some reason, like for checking the termination of the program. I don't know about Visual C++, but in many compiler, you will get the warning message if your main() does not return int.
Overall, this is a very good book, and it deserve 4 stars from me. However, it still can become a much better book.
To the authors : How about "More C++ How-To" or "Advanced C++ : How-To" ?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Data Structure & Algorithms Using "Real" C++, 5. Juni 2000
This book is definitely the best from Mark Weiss yet. The explainations about Data structures and algorithms are very good and not-so-academic as in his other book (named "Data Structures & Algorithm Analysis in C++", which is also very good one).
I found that the books about Data structures & algorithm are always given a not-so-good review, because it doesn't show enough code example or for being too academic. However, this one really deserved 5 stars from me.
The code examples are very good and easy-to-understand for any intermediate C++ programmer (and, of course, for any advenced C++ programmer). So, you can easily use this book for self-study (a lot of people said that his previous book, the one I mentioned above, doesn't suit for self-study, dued to being too-academic). And moreover, the code in this book is true to its name "using C++".
All codes examples are written in real C++, no C-style code fragment here! And with the ability of the Standard Template Library (not all example, only the suitable one). For example : the STL's priority_queue container class was used in Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm, and that is the way it should be implement.
Last word I wish to say about this book is, "It is clearly one of the best book on Data Structures, Algorithms, C++ and How-To-Use C++ I've read so far."
Thank you, Mr.Weiss. Keep up a good work. I hope this one will get even better in its next edition.

The STL (Primer)
The STL (Primer)
von Graham Glass
Preis: EUR 73,99

3.0 von 5 Sternen More of a "Reference" than a "Primer", 11. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The STL (Primer) (Taschenbuch)
I don't like to give any book a low-rated review (see my other reviews). However, this one deserved that. Despited its name, this book only contain short-lists of each container, algorithm, and other things else in the STL. This is, in fact, not a "Primer". For this kind of book, isn't we called it a "Reference"?
The examples in the book are good for showing the readers "how to use the whatever it refered to". However that's all they did. I think it would have been better if some of Real-World examples had been included (like those in Lippman's masterpiece C++ Primer, or Prata's C++ Primer Plus).
So.. why do I still give it 3 stars?
Well it still can be use as a reference when I need to look for something (because its size is quite small...), and I'm not connect on the net...(I found Dinkumware's on-line C/C++ Reference to be very similiar to this one).

C++ Primer
C++ Primer

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty Good, but should change the title....(why?), 25. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: C++ Primer (Taschenbuch)
After years of being a C++ programmer, read quite a lot of books (about 20, I think)... I considered this one as one of my favourite, that I usually refer to when I have some problem.
However, this book is definitely not-for-beginner. So, some of the reader might be misleading by/confuse with its title. The writers had stated this clearly on the back cover, which said "for developers new to C++" and in the preface, which said "This book is intended as a first book on C++; it is NOT intended as a first book on programming!" (However, it's a Primer for "C++" not for "Programming" anyway :-)
One big thing that made this book different from most of the C++ introductory books is, this book provided a lot of "real-world" program examples. Here, I really mean "real world", the program that you can really "use" (maybe after make them a bit more advanced/complete), like the text query system. While all other books provided some little codes to illustrate the points. Ok, that's better for those who know nothing, someone who come to C++ "from scratch", something like that... But after you finished it, you still might not get the idea of how to put them together , unless there are any bigger program to illustrate the idea.
Note to those who are new to programming : Read other book first, so you won't blame on a good book like this.
Note to everyone who had been misleaded by this book's title : Make sure you've read the back cover and the preface of any book before buying it, if you can... (if you can't, you have to try your luck..., good luck for you then :-)

The C++ Programming Language: Special Edition
The C++ Programming Language: Special Edition

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the Best & Most Completed C++ Books Ever!, 14. April 2000
From my years of being a C++ programmer, this is definitely the one of the best reference books I've ever used. This book cover all the aspects of C++, one of the most complicated programming language, with a nice detail of everything, including STL (Standard Template Library, the C++ new standard library).
However, this book is, like all of the previous editions, NOT a language/programming tutorial. To read this book, you will need tons of C++ & OOP knowledge, even if you are an ace C programmer (since C is quite different from C++ in "The Way of Thinking"). Especially, if you are a novice, please read one or two "good" primer book before coming to this one, otherwise you will get lost easily. (Believe me, it's happened to me before when I tried to read the 2nd edition).
Moreover. In this edition, the author, Bjarne Stroustrup, added 2 more appendixes on "locales" and "standard library exception safety", which would make this book even more useful and more complete than any previous editions. And would make this become "A Bible" for C++ Programmaing Language.
If you are a "serious" C++ programmer (or wannabe), you can't get anything better than this. This is a MUST!

Linux Application Development
Linux Application Development

  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you want to program UNIX & Linux, you need this., 13. Januar 2000
This should be one of the best Linux & UNIX programming books available in the market. It provided & covers most Linux's system calls in such detailed, although not as good as "Advanced Programming in UNIX Environment", which does a "perfect (or almost)" job (with almost twice the size of this book, though).
About programming the X Windows, I think it is OK to exclude the topics about X from this book. Since this book is about programming in Linux environment, not making the X application. (Like Stroustrup's "The C++ Programming Language" didn't even mention the MFC..)
Finally, I, personally, think that "This is the book that Linux & UNIX programmers should have consider about having it".

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must Have for any UNIX & Linux Programmers, 12. Januar 2000
This book should always in the reachable place for any UNIX & Linux programmers. This is probraby the most detailed book about UNIX programming in the market. Moreover, the writting style is easy-to-understand, and the examples are really usable and make sense (unlike many examples in many other books..).
Now, I really want to know if the author has any plan for writting "Advanced Programming in the MFC", which would become a best book on MFC and he did with this one.
Finally : Don't live without this book, if you want to program in UNIX & Linux.

5.0 von 5 Sternen When will Part II come out? (I can't wait anymore! ), 17. Dezember 1999
I have read the previos edition of this book, I like it .. but not much. However, that is the old story....
Mr. Sedgewick had done a very good job in this edition, which is FAR BETTER than any of his previos editions, and this make it one of the best algorithms books you can find.
After reading this book, my understand more of what I thought I already know, like those sorting & searching algorithms.
The outstanding book on algorithms by the well-known author, Robert Sedgewick. what more do you want, then?
