Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

While C++ has always been sold as the "object-oriented" language, it can be used for a whole range of general computing tasks, like algorithms. This book provides a number of algorithms that are ready-to-run. This will open the door for C++ programmers to linked lists, stacks and queues, trees, arithmetic algorithms, and graph algorithms.

From the Back Cover

C++ is capable of tackling a whole range of programming tasks. The purpose of this book is to give breadth and depth to C++ programmers' existing experience of the language by representing a large number of algorithms, most of them implemented as ready-to-run (and standalone) programs. The programs are as readable as possible without sacrificing too great a degree of efficiency, generality, portability and robustness. Both the classes and programs are designed to demonstrate major programming principles. There is coverage of two key language features - templates and exception handling - apart from which the reader is assumed to have working knowledge of C++. Besides traditional subjects, such as quicksort and binary trees, this book also covers some less well-known topics, including multi-precision arithmetic, route planning and external sorting. Demonstration programs for these and many other exciting applications are based on C++ classes which you can also use in programs of your own.

I've been hunting around for a while now for a book which teaches data structures using C++ as the implementation language. I think I've finaly found it in this book. All other books I've looked at have just been poor rewrites of previous C algorithm books.
The material is clearly explained most of the time, always with an example to show the algorithm at work. The book focuses on algorithms and data structures that you might actually use one day, unlike some other books which have all these wierd and wonderful algorithms but which you will probably never need to use.
This is the book to have when you start forgeting all that data structure stuff you did in college and you need a review.
The best thing about this book is that it's only ~350 pages so it wont take you years to get through.

I used this book for my Data Structures course and found it very difficult to decifer. The text is hard to understand and if you haven't had much practice in figuring out C++ code, you definitely will have difficulty with Leendert's examples. However, with a little effort and a lot of work (as well as some help by someone more experienced) the code is deciferable. In fact, if you can figure out these examples, you're well on your way to becoming an expert C++ programmer.
I'd recommend this book for the advanced programmer or the programmer that has a great deal of drive and assistance. All in all, definitely worth taking a close look at.

I have never read anything like Ammeraal's book. Beside from his easy prose, the code is elegant and quite intelligent, simple and you can learn a great deal of C++ tricks. I think this book is really advanced and very interesting. Develop a many complex algorithms and gives examples of runs, and the best of all is that the code runs in any compiler.

I've been researching on C++ algorithms to handle large integers for a Visual C++ Calculator I'm currently writing. This book provided me not only with a full and clear explanation of the methodology involved, but also with a complete listing of the class required to handle these operations. Among other techniques, it also showed me clear guidelines to convert recursive algorithms into non-recursive procedures, which I have found very useful for the work I'm doing. This book will indeed be one of my main sources of information in this area. The source code described in the book is also well supported at the Web site which address is provided in the book.
