    What do you mean "different C++ rules"?
    There is only one set of rules which matter, and those are defined by ISO.

    Or are you referring to the endless variety of compiler specific extensions.
    If so, the best place for those is the compiler manual itself.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Ask 10 programmers, get 11 opinions on matters like these.

    But "C++ Coding Standards" and the "Effective C++" series are very good books in that area.
