  1. Effective C++ (book)

    Maybe I'll buy it used because non of the library's near me have those books.. (and i cant request them :\) What should I start with? And @Matt-D, do you know when the "Effective C++11" will come out?   Thanks.
  2. Effective C++ (book)

    So should i get both? :)
  3. Effective C++ (book)

    Which one is better? thanks.
  4. I am reading "C++ for the impatient" and I am going to finish this book soon so i figured I should get "Effective C++". So my question is, is this book updated? Should i get this book or there are other books that recommended and more updated than this book?   thanks in advance.
  5. 2D array and pointers

    UPDATE: this seem to fixed it, im not sure way.. can you explain please?:   #include <iostream> void reset_2D_dbl_array(double *p, int nrows, int ncols); int main(){ double big_matrix[10][10]; reset_2D_dbl_array(big_matrix[0],10,10); std::cout << big_matrix[9][2]; std::cin.ignore(); return 0; } void reset_2D_dbl_array(double *p, int nrows, int ncols){ int n = nrows * ncols; while(n-- > 0){ *p++ = 1.0; } }
  6. 2D array and pointers

      i didnt really understand much lol um.. if i make an array like this: int darr[10][10]; and pass it to a function, the function get an address to an array of 8 int's is that right? meaning that i will get the start address of the whole array ?   i really dont get it S: can you please explain it to me with my function? :\ thanks!
  7. i have bought a book called "c++ for impatient" (released few month's ago i think) and i came across this:   and then they give me a function example of using 2D array with pointers: void reset_2D_dbl_array(double **p, int nrows, int ncols){ int n = nrows * ncols; while(n-- > 0){ **p++ = 0.0; } } so i have been trying to run this code like so: #include <iostream> void reset_2D_dbl_array(double **p, int nrows, int ncols); int main(){ double big_matrix[10][10]; reset_2D_dbl_array(big_matrix,10,10); std::cout << big_matrix[0][0]; std::cin.ignore(); return 0; } void reset_2D_dbl_array(double **p, int nrows, int ncols){ int n = nrows * ncols; while(n-- > 0){ **p++ = 0.0; } } and the code doesn't seem to be working.. i get an error like this:   what should i do and how can i make the function run like it should?   *the function just reset all the cells in the array to 0.0*   thanks!

  10. C++ programing book and game developing

    I actually ordered already C++ for Impatient and i dont really mind reading 700 pages. i will practice and make mini projects and games :)   um.. you think the book i ordered isnt that good? i mean, will it teach me every thing i need to know on c++? (of course not everything but at least what i need)   after reading this book i will order the Effective C++ book and on the way will make mini games and try to improve them in time :) by the way, i got the book "Opengl programming guide 8th edition" that just came out and i will learn from it Opengl, do you think its good? or should i learn from other book or a good tutorial from the web?   thanks!
  11. C++ programing book and game developing

  12. C++ programing book and game developing

    im going to order "C++ For The Impatient" for 63$ and i found a full pdf version of Primer Plus 5th Edition, the primer plus 5th is a problem for me to buy because it will ship only in 5 weeks (not including the time it will take to get to my city) and it cost double if i select a faster delivery.. Thanks a lot for the help ! :)
  13. C++ programing book and game developing

    I think i order the Primer Plus 5th Edition but i dont really know what is better, should i order that book or c++ for the impatient? thanks for the help really!   i dont need a book from the complete beginning but thanks! :)
  14. C++ programing book and game developing

    thanks, i dont really have an access to see the books because in my city there isnt really a "computer" section, and i am pretty sure there isnt any books on c++ on my city, so if you could please tell me what book should be good that teaches the latest c++ version and techniques that would be great and im pretty much not just for me but for everyone who is looking for one so as I.   i will order from Amazon if that's possible and i would like to order the second book you suggested too so i will look for a book too if you guys cant find one and i will update you guys here :)   thanks for your help and i hope you will keep helping me and other's :)
  15. C++ programing book and game developing
