Good insight into the design decisions behind C++. Gained some perspective on some features, but needed a firm basis in C++. Also somewhat dated. ( )

This book (1994, reprint 1995) is an expansion of the author's paper for ACM HOPL-II, the 2nd conference on the History of Programming Languages in 1993. See also the Wikipedia article on [[ HOPL ]].

For ACM HOPL-III in 2007, Stroustrup has written a new paper on "Evolving a language in and for the real world: C++ 1991-2006". A near-final preprint is available at http://www.research.att.com/~bs/hopl-almost-final.pdf ( )

An expansion of the paper in HOPL2. I need to return this to Paul. I'll never get around to actually reading it.

This book gave me amazing insights at the time, but I wonder how relevant it still is these days. ( )
