Past readers will find that the new edition has changed a great deal and grown considerably to encompass new language features, particularly run-time type identification, namespaces, and the standard library. At the same time, readers will recognize the lucid style and sensible advice that made previous editions so readable and enjoyable. Probably the biggest change is a substantial new section, well over 200 pages in length, covering the contents and design of the C++ standard library, the most important new feature of the C++ specification. The author has also added a substantial number of new exercises while keeping many from previous editions that have retained their value.
This book uses a chapter-a-day approach, with the course outline clearly presented inside the front cover so you'll know exactly where you're headed. Unlike many C++ tutorials, this book doesn't put you to sleep early on with object-oriented programming (OOP) theory. Instead, it quickly makes you productive with the basics of the C++ language and then reinforces your new knowledge with OOP as you move through the teaching program.
Contents include: An introduction to Perl Explanations of the language and its syntax Perl functions Perl library modules The use of references in Perl How to use Perl's object-oriented features Invocation options for Perl itself, and also for the utilities that come with Perl Other oddments: debugging, common mistakes, efficiency, programming style, distribution and installation of Perl, Perl poetry, and so on.

You'll find that the second edition carries over many strong points from the original, including a quick-start introduction to Java for C or C++ programmers and the handy quick-reference format. It also details the many new features of Java 1.1, including extensions to the object model and the new release of the Abstract Windowing Toolkit (AWT), Inner Classes, Java Beans, and Java ARchive (JAR) files. The book does not attempt to cover "enterprise" application programming interfaces (API), such as Java's new commerce-related security features, Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) and Remote Method Invocation (RMI). The author plans to document these features in a separate volume.
The second half of Java in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition, is a quick reference to all the packages that comprise the Java API. In the course of over 300 pages, the author introduces each package with a summary and a graphical hierarchy diagram. He then documents each package's component classes and interfaces in detail.
Flanagan's Java in a Nutshell carries on the tradition of concise, readable, and authoritative references of the O'Reilly book series.

The book comprises six parts. The first part is a quick run-through of the various components of the Developer Studio 97 integrated development environment and the Application Framework, while the next two parts present a detailed look at MFC View class usage and the details of Microsoft's document/view application architecture. Part Four presents an in-depth look at the implementation of ActiveX, Component Object Model (COM), Object Linking and Embedding (OLE), and OLE automation technology. The final section addresses the important topic of coding for the Internet. Fundamentals of the TCP/IP protocols, Winsock, and Microsoft's WinInet API are covered in quick succession. The Internet section is illustrative but not comprehensive.
Inside Visual C++ is definitely for serious developers and not newcomers to C++. However, if you've taken the Microsoft route to C++ development, this excellent book is a must-have technical companion to Microsoft's compiler
