Good reading for those interested in C++

I found this article about the modern style of C++:
http://www.artima.com/intv/modern.html

And I also found a book written by Bjarn Stroustrup (the creator of C++) that I want to buy, it's called "the Design and Evolution of C++":
http://www.amazon.com/Design-Evolution- ... 0201543303

Anyways,
Cheers!

Re: Hello, new here =]

Hi! I personally am more interested in game-development, but this website is quite good! Wouldn't you agree?

Annoying Advertisements

People keep posting advertisements in their signatures, then they make one post (so that you can see the signature) and hope that it will attract people to their business... Honestly?

OS Development: GPU Drivers?

Okay, I am quite curious; I want to know how practical it would be to make a brand new OS capable of interfacing with a graphics card, using a driver which may be designed for other circumstances (a different OS). Honestly, I don't know any thing about video-device drivers... 1. Is there an efficien...

Re: VGA GRAPHICS

I would not say GUIs are hard to develop, at least not if you have the support. They just require a lot of functionality, which overall takes time. I have programmed one myself, using Direct3D to interface with the hardware. I'm making my game engine a robust portability system. In turn, I'm require...

Re: How does PartCopy work ?

Thanks. If I understand correctly, I would need to "find" the GUID for every user-chosen file path? Sorry, but I don't really know what I'm actually after; subjecting about these "GUIDs" and raw data. EDIT: And by the way... How do iostream and fstream work? ASM (assembly languag...

How does PartCopy work ?

Before I end up screwing my computer, I want to know the benchmark of PartCopy's clockwork so that I can attempt to write a better version. I'm attempting to create my own Operating System (at least a simple one), but if I do, I want to know how most of my utilities work, and so forth. So, could som...
