C++ Primer was widely regarded as the most effective introduction to the C++ programming language. The new edition covers C++ as reflected in its latest release, Release 3.0, and the ANSI base document, The Annotated C++ Reference Manual, by Ellis and Stroustrup. As a leading member of the team working on the implementation of Realease 3.0, Lippman provides invaluable insights into the new language features.

The most important new addition to the C++ language is the template facility, a feature that facilitates the development of extensive class and algorithmic libraries. Lippman provides comprehensive coverage of this new feature, including a rich variety of examples showing how templates can be used effectively.


  • Includes a new chapter on object-oriented design, using as an example the implementation of a template facility in a C++ compiler.
  • Covers exception handling, now a formal part of the C++ language.
  • Discusses the differences betweeen the Realease 2.0 and Release 3.0 language definition.

C++ PRIMER, SECOND EDITION is useful both as a learning tool and as a reference to C++. It assumes only an understanding of the basic constructs of a programming language. Experienced programmers will appreciate the comprehensive coverage of language features recently introduced into C++.
