Patrick Henry Winston
Learn the standard language for object-oriented programming
This book is written in the clear and concise style that has made Winston's
C, Java, and Lisp books popular among programmers who want to add new
languages to their repertoires. Using this book, you learn C++ quickly and
effectively, and you learn why C++ is the most widely used of the
The Knowledge You NeedYou learn the key concepts as features are added to a short, yet representative C++ program. The program uses knowledge about containers and railroad cars to display a capacity report for a freight train, thereby demonstrating the ability of C++ classes to capture knowledge about naturally occurring categories. As you see the class-enabled program evolve, you learn how to: create classes and objects o define constructor, reader, and writer functions o benefit from data abstraction o inherit member variable values and member functions o create new class objects at run time o find the right function at run time o use constructors in class hierarchies o use protected and private member variables and member functions o use protected and private class derivations o design class hierarchies o use call-by-reference parameters o prevent memory leaks o reuse class definitions using templates and much, much more.
