Thanks, Although it seems to get mixed reviews...
Everyone says it isn't for beginners and some flat out
blast the book. The biggest problem they say is it
reads like a specification manual. I write specs at
work so thats not a big deal to me, and nothing is
more fun then looking through the IBC or NEC...
I understand the basics of object oriented
programming, classes, constructors, destructors but
the syntax and semantics keeps me from writing C++
Does the book read like a specification manual or a
tutorial? Honestly I would almost prefer the
specification manual, I hate getting talked down
too... But on the other hand incomprehensible specs
aren't too good either.
