The aim of this chapter is to provide you with enough of an introduction to the use of C++ so that you can:
Make use of the new features of C++.
Understand C++ source code and benefit from it.
Benefit from the Standard Template Libraries.
C++ is a language in its own right, and large volumes have been dedicated to helping programmers get an in-depth view of it. The goal of the “just enough” approach is to help the readers use C++ in their own projects and make their coding time more efficient.
This chapter concentrates on the differences between C and C++, the language structure, and the new features that will help you achieve all of the tasks described previously.
Having worked through this chapter, you’ll be well ...
