This book provides a complete reference for the C++ programming language. It consists of the C++ reference manual, approved as the base document for ANSI standardization of the language, plus annotations and commentary. The annotations and commentary discuss what is not included in the language, why certain features are defined as they are, and how one might implement particular features. The commentaries also help the reader to understand the relationships between parts of the language. Comparisons with C and examples explain the more subtle points of the language. Sixteen chapters cover the latest version of C++ including multiple inheritance, abstract classes, templates, exception handling, and more. A final chapter describes resolutions by the ANSI/ISO committee including new features such as run-time type information and namespaces. Appendices summarize the grammar and evolution of the language, and explain in detail the differences between C and C++. The Annotated C++ Reference Manual will appeal to language implementors and expert C++ programmers. 0201514591B04062001… (more)

This was very useful when it was published, but I don't know if I'd use it now if I were a practicing C programmer: the language has changed, and the STL and template (meta)programming are the current techniques worth knowing. ( )

This book definitely isn't light reading, but it will give you a very clear pciture of C++. It is a little old so some of the minor points might have changed, but it is at least worth having on the shelf.

1 Introduction -- This manual describes the C++ language as of February 1990. C++ is a general purpose programming language based on the C programming language. In addition to the facilities provided by C, C++ provides classes, inline functions, operator overloading, function name overloading, constant types, references, free store management operators, and function argument checking and type conversion.
