    it's shame for about 2 or 3 years I havent touch games based on computer. I think I am out of time now~

    with your words I remembered even read an article about him. That composition said he hates Microsoft and he looks not so strong, with nice glasses on his nose, yes ?

    I don't know about you guys, but I think that Tom Swan is the best programmer that ever lived.

    Out of interest, how do you know of him?

    I have a book he wrote on TASM years ago that's now out of print.

    Its a pretty good book.

    I used to walk by the river and the birds were singing praises of The Swan. With all the lame ducks around here I'm surprised that he isn't more popular.

    I personally like Scott Meyers. Thats one guy who knows c++ exceptionally well.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    I bought Effective C++ a while back after seeing it listed quite often in references and bibligraphies........Also after seeing this

    I thoroughly recommend this book. It would be nice to see some of our training establishments adopt it as an end of course gift to those who have successfully completed in introduction to C++ for C programmers. The cost could easily be absorbed into most course fees and students would go away with some practical reading to improve their use of C++.
    My only gripe was that it seemed a little expensive for the size of the book....but on reading the book, I now feel it was worth it

    Not bad....might put in an order for More Effective C++ to complete the set
