Thinking in C++
Prev Contents / Index Next


This chapter was a fairly intense tour through all the fundamental features of C++ syntax, most of which are inherited from and in common with C (and result in C++’s vaunted backwards compatibility with C). Although some C++ features were introduced here, this tour is primarily intended for people who are conversant in programming, and simply need to be given an introduction to the syntax basics of C and C++. If you’re already a C programmer, you may have even seen one or two things about C here that were unfamiliar, aside from the C++ features that were most likely new to you. However, if this chapter has still seemed a bit overwhelming, you should go through the CD ROM course Thinking in C: Foundations for C++ and Java (which contains lectures, exercises, and guided solutions), which is bound into this book, and also available at
