Hello, Does anybody know books related to C++ design only ? What I am looking for, is not another book that explains what inheritance or polymorphing is, but explains which features of the language are useful, which not and why. I would not mind if the book is biast as long as an explanation is included. Further, it would be interesting to read or learn more about general static and dynamic design approaches for C++. If anybody know a good book or two, let me know. Thanks in advance.

You can take a look at design patterns, OOD (Object Orianted Design),
and Software enginerring if you are interested:

Patterns

Lists alot of very good books including Scott Meyers "Effective C++" (a must read), and Stroustrups "C++ Programming Language"--another must read.

I also recommend, in addition to Scott Meyers and Stroustrup's books to
take a look at Code Complete 2nd ed

These are possible suggestions.

"Modern C++ Design" should be what you're looking for

- unless you are new to all this programming-stuff. This book is a weapon of mass-destruction(TM) in unskilled hands.

Every feature of the language is useful.

Except exception specifications.
