Dear Brian,
The books home page mentions a complier for PCs is provided free with the companion CD. Which compiler and version is provided? Also does it come with an IDE as well?
Another aspect I need clarity about is are different C++ standards discussed?

Regards,
Anirban.

Difficult to be certain about the CD: if you look here (use the "features" tab), it says
The CD will be replaced with a web link on the Internet.
You can find a table of contents on the same link.

Thanks Campbell. But the link isn't published yet I guess. What are the new standards introduced by ISO C++0x discussed in the text? I would like to know more about decltype, template alaises, variadic templates, costexpr...Do we compare with other standards as well, for old timers who may not have updated?

I would have thought the link would be in the book, which is shown on Amazon as 1st May 2011. Have a look at the link I provided, in the contents tab. That should help; there are some features marked "C++0x only".

Sorry for the long wait for response on this one. All you need to do is go to the books' website, mentioned on page xxvii in the Preface...

www.informit.com/title9780132673266

From there, there is a button that you can click to go to the software download.

I apologize the URL has all those strange numbers in it -- not my doing.

Oh wait a moment... there is no companion CD. There was one for first edition only (you must have got to that site) not the second edition.

Reason for no companion CD is that all the code is online, following the link I mentioned earlier. Some people still use CDs, but most people download from the Internet these days.
