You too can program! Here's your step-by-step guide to the C++ language, including C++ 2009

C++ is still the standard for object-oriented languages, and this friendly guide covers everything you need to know and nothing you don't. It starts at the beginning, so you learn the basics of programming and C++ first. It's full of examples to show you how things work, and it even explains "why," so you understand how the pieces fit together.

  • On good terms — learn programming lingo and what terms like object-oriented, compiler, and executable mean, so you can write a program right away
  • Bundle up — see how to bundle sections of your code into modules that can be reused in different programs

  • Class time — work with features of object-oriented programming such as classes, constructors, and destructors

  • Let your heir down — discover how the concept of inheritance is the key to effective C++ programming

  • A new assignment — work with assignment operators, streaming I/O, and other more advanced concepts
