Hello Brian!

I am a Java programmer who used to program in C/C++ in a former lifetime (over 12 years ago), but I am now being called on to deliver on this older skill set and I am experiencing brain freeze to some degree. As such, I am in the market for a book which can help me relearn some of the basics, as well as to properly learn some of the features which were added later, or which might have existed in one form but were possibly not available to me in the early days of non-standard C/C++ compilers.
