Product description

From the Back Cover

Take your C++ skills to the next level with help from programming guru Herb Schildt. In this unique volume, Herb unlocks the secrets that professional programmers use to create world-class software. In the process, he explores the power, elegance, and artistry of C++. Inside, Herb applies C++ to a wide variety of high-powered, practical applications, each focusing on a different aspect of the language. Examples range from a garbage collector subsystem and a thread control panel to AI-based searches and a custom STL container. Herb even develops a Mini C++ interpreter! You can use each application as-is or as a starting point for your own development. This is some of the most exciting C++ code found anywhere! Inside, you’ll:

  • Explore the power of C++
  • Create a garbage collector subsystem for memory management
  • Develop a thread control panel
  • Build a translator to extend the capabilities of C++
  • Develop a restartable Internet file downloader
  • Create a financial analysis library
  • Explore artificial intelligence with AI-based search techniques
  • Build a custom STL container
  • Develop a Mini C++ interpreter

Herb Schildt is the world’s number-one programming author. He is an authority on the C, C++, Java, and C# programming languages, and was a member of the ANSI/ISO committee that standardized C++. His programming books have sold more than three million copies worldwide and have been translated into all major foreign languages.
