Published at Leanpub: The C++ Standard Library

Just published: The C++ Standard Library: What every professional C++ programmer should know about the C++ standard library.


You can get my new book: "The C++ Standard Library."

You can save yourself reading the whole article and directly download the pdf-book here: Leanpub/cpplibrary

The book costs 16.66 US Dollar.




My book has 200 pages and presents you with the bare minimum that you should know about the current C++ library.

Here is the TOC.

  • Introduction
  • The Standard Library
  • Utilities
  • Interface of All Containers
  • Sequential Containers
  • Associative Containers
  • Adaptors for Containers
  • Iterators
  • Callable Units
  • Algorithms
  • Numeric
  • Strings
  • Regular Expressions
  • Input and Output Streams
  • Multithreading

If you are sceptical and curious- and you should be - I will send you the chapters Introduction and Multithreading. You have only to subscribe to my blog in the right top corner of this page. I will send you in return the two chapters.

If there are technical issues please send me a direct E-Mail including your issue. I will solve the issue. Self-publishing is totally thrilling to me. My former books were published by Addison-Wesley/Pearson, O'Reilly, and dpunkt.

In particular, I thank the English proofreaders of my book: Mahesh Attarde, Rick Audet, Pete Barrow, Michael Ben-David, Dave Burns, Marius Grimm, Alvaro Fernandez, George Haake, Clare Macrae, Arne Mertz, Jason Turner, and Ivan Vergiliev.
They translated my Swabian English into English. Without their precious work, the book wouldn't have been possible.

You really should make the book available as epub.

You really should make the book available as epub.

Sorry it's not possible. I had a longer fight. Only pdf supports cross-links and tables. Therefore, my book has an index.
