**The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference, 2nd Edition**

* The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference, 2nd Edition* doesn’t just provide comprehensive documentation of every library component associated with the newest C++ standard: it also offers clearly-written explanations of complex concepts, reviews practical programming details needed for effective use, and presents many useful examples of working code – all of them available for download. Fully updated to reflect the newest elements of the C++ Standard Library incorporated into the full ANSI/ISO C++ language standard, this book examines containers, iterators, function objects, STL algorithms, special containers, strings, numerical classes, internationalization, the IOStream library, and much more. Every component is presented in depth: Josuttis explains its purpose and design, presents crystal-clear examples, identifies traps and pitfalls, and offers exact signatures and definitions of its classes and functions. Comprehensive, detailed, readable, and practical, Josuttis’ The C++ Standard Library has established itself as the definitive book on the topic: working developers will find this new edition even more useful.

** The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference, 2nd Edition,** describes this library as now incorporated into the new ANSI/ISO C++ language standard (C++11). The book provides comprehensive documentation of each library component, including an introduction to its purpose and design; clearly written explanations of complex concepts; the practical programming details needed for effective use; traps and pitfalls; the exact signature and definition of the most important classes and functions; and numerous examples of working code. The book focuses in particular on the Standard Template Library (STL), examining containers, iterators, function objects, and STL algorithms.

**The Best-Selling C++ Resource: Now Updated for C++11**

The C++ standard library provides a set of common classes and interfaces that greatly extend the core C++ language. The library, however, is not self-explanatory. To make full use of its components-and to benefit from their power-you need a resource that does far more than list the classes and their functions.

The book covers all the new C++11 library components, including:

- Concurrency
- Fractional arithmetic
- Clocks and timers
- Tuples
- New STL containers
- New STL algorithms
- New smart pointers
- New locale facets
- Random numbers and distributions
- Type traits and utilities
- Regular expressions

The book also examines the new C++ programming style and its effect on the standard library, including lambdas, range-based for loops, move semantics, and variadic templates.
