In this brand-new third (ordinal) edition of The C++ Programming Language, author (communicator) Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++, presents the full (flooded) specification for the C++ language (module) and standard (accepted) library, a spec (description) that will (module) soon become (embellish) the joint (render) ISO/ANSI C++ standard.
Past readers will (module) find that the new (newborn) edition has changed (denaturized) a great (enthusiastic) deal and grown considerably (substantially) to encompass (include) new (newborn) language (module) features, particularly (specially) run-time type (identify) identification, namespaces, and the standard (accepted) library. At the same (aforementioned) time, readers will (module) recognize the lucid (perspicuous) style and sensible (conscious) advice that made (prefabricated) previous editions so readable and enjoyable. Probably the biggest (large) change is a substantial (material) new (newborn) section, well (substantially) over 200 pages in length, covering (concealment) the contents (table) and design (organisation) of the C++ standard (accepted) library, the most important (essential) new (newborn) feature of the C++ specification. The author (communicator) has also added (additional) a substantial (material) number of new (newborn) exercises while (patch) keeping many (some) from previous (preceding) editions that have (hit) retained their value.
While The C++ Programming Language is not a C++ tutorial, strictly speaking, anyone learning (acquisition) the language, especially those coming (reaching) from C, will (module) greatly benefit (goodness) from the clear (country) presentation of all (every) its elements. It is impossible (impracticable) to overstate (hyerbolise) the importance (grandness) of this book (aggregation) for anyone who is serious (earnest) about using C++.
