In need of a good book for C++...

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! Just have a question on what is the best book to get after "Tec yourself C++ in 24 hours"? I went through that one, but it did not provide enough material. I am looking for a textbook-style book that covers graphics, more IO, file management, etc. I looked at some books but they are either too basic, or too complex. Assume that I am comfortable with anything from "24 hours" but know nothing more. -Thank you.

The C++ programming language by Bjarne Stroustrup, you should be able to pull it off

Also, no C++ books will cover graphics since there is no native support for graphics in C++. You''ll need to pick up an API specific book for that (eg. Windows/DirectX).

Currently, I''m reading Stanley Lippman''s ''C++ Primer, third edition'', and I''m very pleased with it. Although it''s a primer, it does go into the more advanced topics, and it uses the final C++ standard. The STL is covered as well.

File I/O is covered with the C++ iostream library, but is text I/O oriented. Graphics, file management etc. is not really part of the C++ language, so you''ll need other resources for that.
