Extensively revised and updated, this proven book by noted C++/C expert Ira Pohl is written specifically for C programmers who are transitioning to C++. C++ For C Programmers takes an evolutionary teaching approach, using C as a starting point and C++ as a destination. This third edition reflects the new ANSI C++ Standard, and covers the latest language features-including detailed discussions of templates, STL, and exception handling. Each chapter contains a brief examination of Java that compares and contrasts it with C++, providing the C programmer with a more complete understanding of both C and C++, and their relationship to Java.

Ira Pohl is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Cruz and holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University. His research interests include artificial intelligence, the C and C++ programming languages, practical complexity problems, heuristic search methods, deductive algorithms, and educational and social issues. He originated error analysis in heuristic search methods and deductive algorithms.
Professor Pohl was formerly a Mackay professor at University of California- Berkeley and a ZWO fellow in the Netherlands. He is the author or co-author of Object-Oriented Programming Using C++, C++ Distilled: A Concise Ansi/Iso Reference and Style Guide, C by Dissection: The Essentials of C Programming, A Book on C: Programming in C, C++ for C Programmers, C++ for Fortran Programmers, C++ for Pascal Programmers, and Turbo C: The Essentials of C Programming, all published by Addison-Wesley.
The book uses an evolutionary teaching process, with C as a starting point and C++ as a destination. It can also be used by those already familiar with other similar programming languages, such as Pascal, PL/1, or BASIC. The reader can stop and use the language facilities at various points in the text.
This book will get the C programmer up and running in C++ in the shortest possible time. The teaching-by-equivalency method used enables the C programmer to immediately convert existing code to C++. Working code is emphasized. A program particularly illustrative of the chapter's themes is analyzed by dissection, which is similar to a structured walk-through of the code. Dissection explains to the reader newly encountered programming elements and idioms.
C is a general-purpose programming language that was originally designed by Dennis Ritchie of Bell Laboratories and implemented there on a PDP-11 in 1972. C was first used as the systems language for the UNIX operating system. Ken Thompson, the developer of UNIX, had been using both an assembler and a language named B to produce initial versions of UNIX in 1970.
C++, invented at Bell Labs by Bjarne Stroustrup in the mid-1980s, is a powerful modern successor language to C. C++ adds to C the concept of class, a mechanism for providing user-defined types, also called abstract data types. C++ supports object-oriented programming by these means and by providing inheritance and runtime type binding. C++ is increasingly the choice of scientists and engineers in developing scientific software.
This book, intended for use in a first course in C++ programming, can be used as a supplementary text in an advanced programming, data structures, software methodology, comparative language, or other course in which the instructor wants C++ to be the language of choice. Each chapter presents a number of carefully explained programs.
All of the major pieces of code were tested. A consistent and proper coding style is adopted from the beginning and is one chosen by professionals in the C++ community. The code is available at the Addison Wesley Longman Web site (www.awl.com/cseng/titles/0-201-39519-3/).
For the programmer who wants C experience, this book could be used in conjunction with A Book on C, 4th ed. , by Al Kelley and Ira Pohl (Addison-Wesley, 1998). As a package, the two books offer a unique, integrated treatment of the C and C++ programming languages and their use.
This book incorporates a number of important features.
My special thanks go to my wife, Debra Dolsberry, who encouraged me throughout this project. She acted as book designer and technical editor for this edition. She developed appropriate formats and style sheets in FrameMaker 5.5 and guided the transition process from my other books on C++. She also implemented and tested all major pieces of code.
This book was developed with the support of my editor, J. Carter Shanklin, and editorial assistant, Angela Buenning.
