Revue de presse
“The content is, as always, first-rate. Even though I've moved to Java as my primary language, I still find myself thumbing through the book and, now, this CD. But, where this product REALLY shines and distinguishes itself is in its production. This is so much more than just a book thrown onto a CD. Every self-respecting Java and C++ programmer should add this CD to his or her collection!”
—Chris Cleeland, Senior Software Architect, Catalyst Solutions
“On close examination, I find Meyers' books to be superb…If you actively code C++ and have less than five years' full-time on-the-job experience in C++, you probably should obtain this CD-ROM set, which is both inexpensive and exceptionally easy to browse and absorb. It reads smoothly, and is factual. Meyers' examples are elegant and nearly egoless. His advice is invariably helpful. Let us acknowledge that Scott Meyers has a stylistic instinct and an aesthetic for genuine workplace C++ as fine and flawless as one programmer can admit of another programmer. Let us also acknowledge a great web editing and production job. This is top flight self-instruction technical literature tastefully and professionally redesigned in CD-ROM form with an eye to readability and ease of navigation. And considering that, in addition to the content, Meyers also designed and implemented the presentation format of this fine CD-ROM, he gets an extra thumbs up. A job well done.”—Jack Woehr, Dr. Dobb's Electronic Review of Computer Books
“Wow! All I can say is Wow! If you are a C++ programmer, get this book.”—C/C++ Users Journal
“I am happy to report that Scott Meyers has broken the logjam of fat books, higher prices, and thin CD-ROMs with Effective C++ CD.”—Windows Developers Journal
Quatrième de couverture
Now all 85 of Scott Meyers’ invaluable C++ rules — and more — are available on one CD!
Scott Meyers is an undisputed guru of C++, best known for his incisive guidelines on effective use of the language. This CD includes the complete text of his Effective C++, Second Edition, and More Effective C++, plus a collection of recent C++ magazine articles. Far more than the sum of Meyers’ two books, the CD has more than 2,000 separate links: within and between the books, among the books and the articles, and from the books and articles to the Internet. Meyers personally selected the magazine articles to complement the material in his books, and they make the CD even more comprehensive and up-to-date.
Navigating the Effective C++ CD is fast and easy, because it takes advantage of powerful new features in the leading web browsers. You never have to click more than twice to get to the information you want. If you’re not sure where to find what you want, you can search using your browser, using a special index covering both books, or using a full-text search engine that knows about everything on the CD.
This CD offers unprecedented support for linking into the material, so seamlessly integrating the CD with a collection of HTML documents (such as an Intranet) is painless. Also unprecedented is the CD’s configurability. Preference options control the size of images, diagrams, and file sizes, resulting in a system that looks good and responds quickly, regardless of your configuration. No more graphics spilling off your smaller screen, or indecipherable images on high-resolution monitors — laptop to desktop, you get the information you need the way you want to see it.
The Effective C++ CD is an indispensable resource for any programmer who wants to push C++ to its outer limits — and beyond.
System requirements: Netscape Navigator 4.0+ (on Unix, Mac, or Win32) or Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0+ (on Win32 only).
A fully functional demo of this CD is now available.
