C++ FAQs

My foremost reference for C++

  • Feb 16, 2000
While there are new things that come up from time to time, in the overwhelming number of cases, many others have tried to do what you are doing. The hurdles that you face have almost certainly been leapt by someone else. Furthermore, if the problem that you are having is difficult, then others have also tried and most likely struggled. Finally, one of the most efficient ways to learn to program for production is to study those problems that others have frequently faced. It is quite likely that the problems that many others have had will contain some that you will face at some point. Put all of this together, and lists of Frequently Asked Questions or FAQs are one of the most valuable resources that you can have.
Outside of questions concerning basic syntax, this is the first reference that I consult when I am stuck on a point in C++. Even if the FAQ is not quite what I am doing, in many cases it is close enough so that I can interpolate the proper path. I use this book as a reference so often that I listed it as one of the best books of the year in my "On Books" column that appeared in the September, 1999 issue of _Journal of Object-Oriented Programming_.
