From years of experiments and research, AT&T Bell Laboratories has created C++, successor to the immensely popular C programming language. Already used in many AT&T projects, C++ has rapidly gained acceptance throughout universities and commercial programming shops. The major improvement in C++ over standard C is in the area of data abstraction. C++ makes it possible to create custom data types and special operators and functions that act on them. This leads to a new approach to data structures, called "object-oriented" programming.
The Waite Group's C++ Programming is a complete guide and tutorial to the C++ language. Aimed at the intermediate--to-advanced C programmer, the book stresses the unique, object-oriented mesaging capabilities of this exciting new extension to C, including:
Written in The Waite Group's friendly, hands-on style, this book teaches through examples as linked lists, derived hierarchies of classes, a complete MS-DOS communications program using a derived class to add telecommunications capabilities, and UNIX System V semaphor manipulation.
All examples are compatible with C++ translators and compilers available for both UNIX and MS-DOS operating systems. Individual chapters discuss C++ programming under each of these operating systems. Because the book contains exercises and quizzes, it is ideal for both self-study and as the basis for a one-semester course.
