    Good book on C++?

    Looking for a good book on C++, usable by two different people:

    Me, who did a lot of C++ programming 10 years ago: more like a memory refresh and reference.
    My son, who knows some C, so some introduction on OO would be nice.

    I used to have an early edition of the Stroustrup, but can't find it and it could be a bit outdated by now.

    Any recommendations?

    You can try going to your local library, they probably have several C++ books. I would just try skimming through a few to see if any seems like the right book for my level and needs.

    I learned C++ almost entirely from books in my college library, although I had to read more than one book as all of them would explain some concepts well and others not so well.

    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.
    Use ubuntu-support-status with caution.

    *3085, and counting.

    Programming: principles and practice using C++ was what I learned from, although I freely admit I'm terrible at C++. linky

    I've bought this book for learning C++: The C++ Programming Language, 4th Edition.

    I read the original Ada reference manual (ANSI/MIL-STD 1815A, I still have it) in the early 80s. That was a very good bedtime reading...
