    Best C++ Reference Book

    Hi.

    I have read the following since I began learning and practicing C++ a few months back:

    Tony Gaddis - Starting Out With C++ Second Edition Alternate
    Deitel & Deitel - C++ How to Program Third Edition

    The Deitel book is the best, however, I find it is good for learning rather than looking up quick references.

    I use SGI for STL, but it there are few examples except for containers.

    What is the more complete C++ reference that any serious programmer should definitely have?

    Thanks,
    Kuphryn

    well as far as I know, there isn't one book for everything because c++ can be used in a very large amount of things. are you doing game or application programming?

    Hi.

    I am interesting in application programs, although I have not tried programming any aspect of a game. So in general, I like application.
