From the Back Cover
The definitive must-have volume for everyone who is serious about programming in C++
Like a dictionary to an author, the C++ Standard is an essential reference for C++ programmers. Whether you write tools, compilers, or programs you will need torefer to the latest international standard that defines the language in order to be sure your code runs correctly. Your reason for buying this bound paper version is to have to hand for easy reference:
the complete, current International C++ Standard
incorporating Technical Corrigendum 1
This is technically BS ISO/IEC 14882:2003 (Second Edition) as approved by all national standards bodies (such as ANSI). It is the ONLY available bound version of the standard.
Additionally, you will find an introduction by Lois Goldthwaite explaining the standards process and how to participate. Bjarne Stroustrup creator of the language, provides the Foreword.
