商品描述

C++ Gotchas is a guide to avoiding and correcting ninety-nine of the most common, destructive, and interesting C++ design and programming errors. Students will get a look inside look at the more subtle C++ features and programming techniques.

This book discusses basic errors present in almost all C++ code, as well as complex mistakes in syntax, preprocessing, conversions, initialization, memory and resource management, polymorphism, class design, and hierarchy design. Each error and its repercussions are explained in context, and the resolution of each problem is detailed and demonstrated.

Author Stephen Dewhurst supplies students with idioms and design patterns that can be used to generate customized solutions for common problems. students will also learn more about commonly misunderstood features of C++ used in advanced programming and design. A companion Web site, located at http://www.semantics.org, includes detailed code samples from the book.
