<pre>Author/s : Ivor Horton Publisher : Apress Category :Other Review by : Gregg Bolinger Rating : 10 horseshoes</pre> 3 editions and still going strong! Beginning ANSI C++ is a must have for anyone wanting to learn C++ in it's trust form, ANSI style. This book covers every aspect of ANSI C++ and covers the Standard Template Library. Not only can someone with little to no C++ knowledge learn the language with this book alone, but they can reference this book anytime something seems unclear. Even the seasoned C++ programmer can use this book as a reference. There are 2 things I liked best about this book. 1. ANSI - The most generic multiplatform compliant C++ possible. Any C++ compiler should be able to compile every example in this book. And that leads me to my next point. 2. Example after example. This book is filled with examples for everything that is explained. So not only do you learn how and why, but then you can see it in action. I highly recommend this book if you have any desire to learn C++.
