This real quick guide is really too quick. Here are some
additional references which you'll find useful.
Of the making of C++ books there is no end
Here are a few books that you find useful, with links to Amazon.com:
C++ by Stanley B. Lippman. This is an excellent tutorial,
somewhat in the same spirit as the Real Quick tutorial, but much
more complete. (By the way, I would not recommend its
companion volume, Accelerated C++, which seems spotty to me
in its coverage).
C++ Programming Language (3rd Edition) by Bjarne Stroustrup.
Stroustrup is the creator of C++, and this book is a very complete,
generally readable reference book that also makes a reasonable
tutorial introduction if you are already familiar with
Concepts with C++ Essentials, 3rd Edition by Cay Horstmann. I
got sent this book by mistake (we used Horstmann's Java version of
this book for a intro to programming course I helped teach), but
I'm glad I got it. If you're new to programming, and need to start
by using C++, this is a good book to do it with.
