C++ Books?
Posted by: Anthem
Date: July 25, 2009 05:33PM

I wanted to learn a compiled language and figured I'd go with C++. There's a dazzling array of books on the shelf and I'm not sure which to buy. I know there's places online, but I kinda like having a book.

Something that teaches good practice at a good learning curve while still being comprehensive?

Halp.

I'd recommend Kernighan and Richie's The C Programming Language as a good place to start.

I know it's not C++, but it's a good start.

Also, what's a good compiler to learn? Not just to start, one that I would use in the future.

And could anybody share some sites that teach good practice?

1) Do not read C books if you want to learn C++. They really are different languages and learning C will totally throw you off when you have to learn objects in C++.

2) Obviously, the best compiler to learn is the one you can look at the source, so gnu_c++ (c++ on the command line) might be a good start.
