    A good book for someone who already can program?

    I am wondering about some book whick explains the C++ language, and not so much explaining how to program. Kinda like a C++ version of K&R, something that will (hopefully) get me on my feet with the syntax pretty quickly, without really spending any discussion of algorithms.

    if you really want to know the language get "The C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Stroustrup, he made the language. its 1000+ pages though(a little longer than K&R) but it is the K&R of C++.
