Description - Effective C++ by Scott Meyers

Revision of the best seller. This is the market leading, second book on programming that every C++ programmer needs.; Scott Meyers is one of the world's foremost experts on C++ software development. He is an excellent promoter of his books.; More than 50 per cent new material and complete updates of tried-and-true material to bring it up to 2005 standards.; There is no better way to bring C++ programmers up to date on cutting edge practices than this book. It's a classic - the No. 1 book of its kind. Effective C++ 3/e is a complete update of Effective C++ and Effective C++ 2/e. Like its predecessors, 3/e has 55 guidelines which contain better, more effective ways to write code, backed by specific examples. The second edition published in 1997, and was basically a face-lift of the first edition, keeping most of the same elements, and seven years later is still selling well. Now, Meyers has dramatically rejuvenated the material, including more than 50 per cent brand-new material. Meyers began this edition by asking himself, "What are the 55 most important pieces of advice for practicing C++ programmers in 2005?" He also asked thousands of past users of his books this same question. This resulted in a completely new book. New material includes use of UML notation, thread safety, exception safety, design patterns, and templates. Any older material has been revitalized to reflect new ideas and strides in C++ development.
