Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For anyone who works with C++ on Windows, Microsoft Visual C++ .NET Language Reference offers a highly useful reference to C++ used in the new Visual C++ .NET. Blending coverage of traditional features of this tried-and-true programming language with the latest in .NET features, this title shows how C++ has a real role to play in Microsoft's new platform.

This reference work can serve as the definitive guide to language features for the Visual C++ .NET programmer. With listings of every keyword in the language, plus explanations of what they mean, along with sample code, veteran C++ programmers can see how their favorite language has been updated for .NET. (Some reference topics are generously reprinted. For example, the same material occurs for the try, throw, and catch keywords for easy access on exception handling.) Extensive listings of C++ operators and material on every aspect of designing with classes are two highlights here.

The heart of this book for most readers will be its coverage of managed extensions, that is, C++, the language used to target .NET programs. This material shows that Virtual C++ .NET is a first-class language for the new platform. This text lists and explains important language extensions (like _gc) that permit C++ to work with .NET and take full advantage of new capabilities like garbage collection, delegates, events, as well as properties and indexers. These chapters will more than justify the cost of this book for anyone tackling C++ on the new .NET. Final listings of every Visual C++ .NET compiler and linker switch provide some more useful reference material.

In all, this text proves that Visual C++ .NET has a role to play in .NET. As a reference to the C++ language of old, plus new Microsoft enhancements to the language the permit it to work with .NET, this title will be a must-have for anyone who writes C++ code on Windows and .NET. --Richard Dragan

Amazon has listed the wrong publication date for this book. It is not 2006 - the actual publciation date is 2002 (and Amazon's correction system won't let you put in the correct date).

The reason the publication date is important is that much of the material in this book about managed extensions is outdated and does NOT apply to Visual C++ 2005. For instance, __gc class is now replaced with ref class, tracking handle ^ replaces pointer *, etc. So, if you have old managed code you need to convert to 2005, this book will be of no help. And if you're writing new managed code, this book will lead you in the wrong direction.

This is an OK book as a reference for conventional C++. Microsoft needs to publish an updated version for managed code. But I doubt they will since they don't really want us to use C++ (they are pushing us to use their own languages, C# and Visual Basic).
