C++:A Dialog - Programming with C++ Standard Library

Steve Heller teaches C++ from scratch, through a one-on-one conversation with an intelligent beginner who asks the questions you’d ask. Heller’s unique dialog format is brilliantly designed to clarify the concepts you might otherwise find confusing, so you can quickly learn today’s most powerful and valuable C++ development techniques.


Heller takes you from the absolute fundamentals through the construction of a complete inventory application, including a simple but effective user interface. Along the way, you won’t just learn C++ features: you’ll see exactly how professional programmers bring them together and put them to work.

Unlike many beginners’ books, C++: A Dialog uses industry-standard C++ and the latest standard librariesgiving you skills you can use with any standard C++ toolset, in any programming environment. You even get all the example code and a standard C++ compiler on CD-ROM so you can write and compile your own standard C++ programs on any 32-bit Microsoft Windows platform.
