    Best Book/Resources To Learn C++

    Hey friends,I am a complete newbie in programming c++,know a bit of c language just the basics not advance thing.I was just googling and came here.

    Now I want to learn c++ from scratch to advance level nomatter how much time it will take,so can you suggest few good books saw other threads as well but there are so many books got confused which one to read.I know everyone suggested according to their experience but its kinda confusing for a newbie.isnt it?Read somewhere complete reference by herbert shildt is good but read at few forums that its not good and not recommended

    Now experts plz tell me a good book which covers all c++ basics and fundamentals my queries like how to design softwares that work on windows and how to make it for linux as well.

    Like it always surprise me developers write code separately for all os or they just change the extension like a software is there for windows in exe and same is there for mac in dmg or say linux in rpm so do they write separate codes or just change the extension then how

    And what is the difference in c++ and visual c++,what are the pros and cons of both

    Accelerated C++, thinking in C++ are good choices.

    C++ is a language specification, as published by ISO
    Visual C++ is an implementation of that specification, as published by Microsoft. It allows you to compile C++ programs, and provides a number of other useful "productivity" tools.
    GCC is another implementation, as published by FSF. It too allows you to compile C++ programs.
    And so on.

    > Like it always surprise me developers write code separately for all os
    Not likely.
    A large block of the code will be common to all operating systems. It gets OS specific at the edges, particularly when it gets to the point of packaging the software for distribution.
    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.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    This is not a book, but if you know C you might want to try this online tutorial:

    The top link has good elaborated books and Accelerated C++, thinking in C++ are written there not exactly as beginners book I need something that teaches all the basics first in sequential manner saw thinking in c++ many things are discussed earlier like namespace and all before discussing the data types and first program.

    Yup heard that gcc is a compiler for linux,ya the code is same logic remains same but the compilers are different for different OS ,any idea in which language compilers are written as different OS has different extension then how do they make compilers for OS ,yup need to know how they do packaging of the software for distribution.

    I don't know about Thinking in C++ as I have never really read it, but Accelerated C++ teaches all the basics first in a sequential manner for beginners to C++. In my opinion it is not geared towards absolute beginners to programming, but with your minimal C background that should not be a problem for you.

    Version Control System: Bazaar
