Beginning C++ Programming – Richard Grimes – 1st Edition

Description

C++ has come a long way and is now adopted in several contexts. Its key strengths are its infrastructure and resource-constrained , including desktop , servers, and performance-critical , not to forget its importance in . Despite its strengths in these areas, beginners usually tend to shy away from the language because of its steep curve.

The main mission of this is to make you familiar and comfortable with C++. You will finish the not only being able to write your own code, but more importantly, you will be able to read other projects. It is only by being able to read others’ code that you will progress from a beginner to an advanced programmer. This is the first step in that progression.

The first task is to familiarize you with the structure of C++ projects so you will know how to start reading a . Next, you will be able to identify the main in the language, functions, and classes, and feel confident being able to identify the execution flow through the code. You will then become aware of the facilities of the standard library and be able to determine whether you need to write a routine yourself, or use an existing routine in the standard library.

Throughout the book, there is a big emphasis on and pointers. You will understand usage, allocation, and access, and be able to write code that does not leak . Finally, you will learn about C++ classes and get an introduction to object orientation and polymorphism.
