Optimizing C++

Optimizing C++

Free online book Optimizing C++ provides working programmers and those who intend to be working programmers with a practical, real-world approach to program optimization.


Written in an exceptionally clear style that doesn’t skimp on technical detail, Steve Heller’s guide offers several high-performance search and data-compression algorithms, which are all you need to add speed to C++. Early sections of the book address the advantages of optimizing C++, which the author considers something of a lost art. Instead of just investing in faster hardware, the author makes the case that optimizing code can result in faster, more useful programs.
