[Help] C++ Language

P: n/a
I have had some experience with programming and some with c++. Here is my
situation: I need to learn ANSI C++ in it's entirety from the ground up.
Where do I start? I already have Borland Builder 6 so a compiler is not an
issue. Please be specific in your replies; I would appreciate it greatly.
Thank you in advance.

There is no better book for standard C++ than The C++ Programming Language:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...books&n=507846

Depending on how much you already know, you could just read most of the
ANSI/ISO C++98 specifications (Document: ANSI ISO IEC 14882-1998):
ftp://ftp.research.att.com/dist/c++std/WP/CD2/ (note that his is an
older/obsolete one, but free)

You could probably try 'The C++ Programming Language' by Bjarne Stroustrup.

Your compiler very definitely is an issue if you really want to learn the
entire language. Many compilers do not implement some advanced features of
C++, or implement them wrongly. Partial template speciailization and Koenig
lookup are the obvious examples. Not sure about Borland Builder 6 in this
respect.
