    Offline C++ Reference


    I am looking for an Offline C++ Reference for Ubuntu 9.10.
    Please give me any reference that is clear and nice for running offline whether as PDF or any kind. And if there is a commercial version please put a link for it.

    Thank you

    There's a lot to C++ and the only complete C++ reference I know of is the actual C++ Language Standard. (There are a couple of complete online references,and your compiler may include a good reference.) It's available in PDF or as a hard-copy. I wouldn't say it's "clear & nice"... It's a technical specification and it's... very technical. And, it covers standard/portable C++. It doesn't cover anything particular to the compiler(s) that comes with Ubuntu. (Most compilers come with additional non-standard libraries, so you can do things like graphics & sound which are not part of standard C++.)

    There are lots of C++ books.

    It should come with man pages.

    They are as useful as the person reading them.

    does anyone know a C++ reference book that I can buy?

    I'm using Windows 7

    in the C++ recommendations section there are many books, but which is the best?
