More than three-quarters of a million programmers have benefited from this book in all of its editions
Written by Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++, this is the world's most trusted and widely read book on C++.
For this special hardcover edition, two new appendixes on locales and standard library exception safety (also available at www.research.att.com/~bs/) have been added. The result is complete, authoritative coverage of the C++ language, its standard library, and key design techniques. Based on the ANSI/ISO C++ standard, The C++ Programming Language provides current and comprehensive coverage of all C++ language features and standard library components.
- abstract classes as interfaces
- class hierarchies for object-oriented programming
- templates as the basis for type-safe generic software
- exceptions for regular error handling
- namespaces for modularity in large-scale software
- run-time type identification for loosely coupled systems
- the C subset of C++ for C compatibility and system-level work
- standard containers and algorithms
- standard strings, I/O streams, and numerics
- C compatibility, internationalization, and exception safety
Bjarne Stroustrup is the designer and original implementer of C++ and the author of The C++ Programming Language (first edition 1985, second edition 1991, third edition 1997), The Design and Evolution of C++ (1994), and Programming: Principles and Practice using C++ (2010). He is the College of Engineering Chair in Computer Science Distinguished Professor at Texas A&M University, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and an AT&T Fellow. Before moving to academia, he worked for decades in AT&T Bell Labs. He is a founding member of the ISO C++ standards committee. Vist him on the web at www.research.att.com/~bs/.
However, this book is, like all of the previous editions, NOT a language/programming tutorial. To read this book, you will need tons of C++ & OOP knowledge, even if you are an ace C programmer (since C is quite different from C++ in "The Way of Thinking"). Especia...続きを読む ›

The 1st and 2nd printings of this book are thus toilet paper, unless the author or publisher someday get those errata online. You must get the 3rd or later printing. I'm docking a star for not making the errata available from earlier printings.
Bjarne went all out and rewrote a good bit of this book, reusing some examples from the previous editions. I have been seeing entirely new and revised examples for the most part. I particularly like how he broke up some of the longer chapters from previous editions into more manageable parts. My only disappointment with this book are the little mistakes. Someone familiar with C++ should understand the intent, but it may confuse some. This book adds a LOT of new content and reorganized a lot of the previous content, so mistakes are understandable.
This book makes an excellent reference. I have already used it extensively to upgrade a personal project to C++11. This has been essential for replacing Boost libraries with the new standard library. If you are trying to play catch-up (like myself) it's definitely worth it. It explains move semantics, variadic templates, the new memory model and many of the new language features.
As with previous editions, not only is a good book for learning C++... it teaches a lot about good programming in general.
If you are a C++ programmer, you need this book as a reference in order to understand the language and the intent behind some of the features (especially the new C++11).
I don't think this book is a starting point for beginners that want to learn the language. Who want to read 1000+ book when they just want to get started. I got put off by the 3rd edition when I started programming C++ and came back to it later. Use "A Tour of C++" from the same author to get the gist of the language and come back to this book once you are more experienced with the language. I also found the 4th edition to be clearer and better presented than the previous edition.
Finally, I will restate an advice I found useful from the C++ isofaq, whatever language you want to learn, there is 3 types of books you must have:
- 1 reference book to present you what is legal in the language
- 1 advice/rule book to present you what is moral in the language
- 1 example book
In my opinion the definitive C++ reference book is Bjarne book. You may not need it now but you will come back to it once you matured in the language, and when you really want to understand the feature you are using.
If you are doing modern C++ development, you need this book. The clarity of the descriptions and the completeness of coverage of what has become a vast language (when you include all the standard library features) will save you time, and inspire you to write clear, concise, elegant code.
There being way too many introductory C++ textbooks and primers on the market, this helps to fill the need for advanced textbooks too!
And, of necessity, a lot of explaining of the new C++ 11 features and the expanded C++ 11 STL.
Warning, to quote the author: "This book assumes its readers are programmers." The essential basics are dealt with in only a few pages, in order to give more pages to many an advanced topic. In its 1360 pages, more ground is covered than in most C++ texts. Whilst in some ways rather survey like, and short on detail, this book is terse and definitive and uses technical terms with precision. And given the authors involvement in the C++ 11 standardization process, one can be confident that the terms are used with precision!
And may I state my delight that vector bool being stored compactly remains a feature, though not implemented that way in any Microsoft compiler I ever tested ...
I'd recommend this text to third year computer science students and third year software engineering students. First and second year students would in my opinion be better off buying his other textbook, "Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++".
Whilst this text has the odd typo, these seem so few as to inspire hope that this will be a classic text for years to come ...
