Long description

More than three-quarters of a million programmers have benefited from this book in all of its editions Written by Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++, this is the worlds most trusted and widely read book on C++. For this special hardcover edition, two new appendixes on locales and standard library exception safety (also available at www.research.att.com/~bs/) have been added. The result is complete, authoritative coverage of the C++ language, its standard library, and key design techniques. Based on the ANSI/ISO C++ standard, The C++ Programming Language provides current and comprehensive coverage of all C++ language features and standard library components. For example: *abstract classes as interfaces *class hierarchies for object-oriented programming *templates as the basis for type-safe generic software *exceptions for regular error handling *namespaces for modularity in large-scale software *run-time type identification for loosely coupled systems *the C subset of C++ for C compatibility and system-level work *standard containers and algorithms *standard strings, I/O streams, and numerics *C compatibility, internationalization, and exception safety Bjarne Stroustrup makes C++ even more accessible to those new to the language, while adding advanced information and techniques that even expert C++ programmers will find invaluable.

Bought the Book

I have purchased the book and I would highly recommend it to all C++ programmers. However, how is it possible that is is almost R400 cheaper to buy this exact book directly from USA (incl import duties). It says that it is a South African publisher. Surely this should make the book cheaper?
