Go to http://www.iso.org and search for "C++ programming language"
standards. Pick the newest one. :-)

Copies of standard documents might cost and arm and a leg, but they're huge
whoppers anyway. A purchase for life! ;-)

If you don't have that much money, you might get a partial copy (i.e.
without the first page ;-) ) from a university library. They usually have
those standards sitting around somewhere. And it's still legal to do that.
;-)

Other than that, you could make do with the latest Stroustrup books about
C++ as well. Usually "The C++ programming language" book contains the exact
syntax definition of C++ as well. :-)

I hope this helped.

Regards,
Ekkehard Morgenstern.

great help, thanks!!


you're welcome! :-)

BTW, I just searched ISO myself and only the search term "programming
languages C++" yields the desired result.

The current ISO C++ standard from 2003 is "ISO/IEC 14882:2003" and costs CHF
364,00.

I hope that helps.

If you are willing to settle for a PDF file a cheap alternative for the
rather expensive ISO version can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/31yw

Thanks!!! :-)

I've just seen that BSI also published the current C Standard (ISO
9899:1999). Great!! :-)

I hope these books will help that people will write more compilers for C and
C++, so we have more choices! :-)

And they're definitely more affordable than the ISO documents. :-)

True. However, you can get that in book form from Wiley for about $60
and in pdf from ANSI from $18. See my C++ page for details.

Nope. The PDF one with TC1 applied (2003) is currently priced at $273 (US)
at ANSI. Only the orignal 1998 one is available at $18.

If you fake Stroustrup, you should at least correctly write the url of
his home page.

Looks like Bjarne to me. It was posted from cs.tamu.edu. Give him some slack,
he hid the / instead of the / betwee reasearch and att.

Thanks for the info and the link to your homepage! :-)

The Wiley/BSI book "The C++ Standard" is definitely worth waiting for, since
it'll have the latest (2003) standard! :-)

(btw, thanks for creating the C++ language!! it IS a better C, definitely!
:-) )

How do you get that idea? It was actually posted via google groups.

Funny, this doesn't show up in the headers of that message on my NG
reader ... the post seems to have originated in Austria or Germany.

Where do you see this?

Hmm, I was only looking for the news server the posting came from, not
for the posting host. Maybe I just didn't expect Bjarne Stroustrup to
post via google groups :-) or to post here at all, since I never saw a
posting from him in this group.
Sorry if I made an idiot out of myself (again).

He post here occasionally and seems to have been using Google for a
while. Actually, it makes a lot of sense for someone who travels around
a bit. If you use a strict NNTP reader, your article history is left on your
local machine so unless you lug around a laptop, it's easier to use a web
based service. By examining his posting sites it looks like he does make
use of it on the road a bit. Either that, or theirs an elaborate Stroustrup
impersonating conspiracy that's been going on for a while :-)

And I've noticed that message ids of his google postings begin
with 188b3370. You know, just in case. ;-) ;-)
