Beginning C++ in FreeBSD

For beginner level stuff, I personally liked "C++ for Linux in 21 Days"
1-1/ref=sr_1_1/002-1388169-2092062?v=glance&s=books).  It really helped me
get the hang of the gcc compiler, and break some nasty habits I had picked
up with Visual Studio 6.  I am also very interested to see if anyone has
better advanced books that they used.

Best Regards,

I will strongly consider your advice.
Tomorrow I'm heading out to barns and noble to pick up
some reading. Any good beginner C books you may

thanks for your time every one!
