Everyone says it isn't for beginners and some flat out blast the book. The biggest problem they say is it reads like a specification manual. I write specs at work so thats not a big deal to me, and nothing is more fun then looking through the IBC or NEC... I understand the basics of object oriented programming, classes, constructors, destructors but the syntax and semantics keeps me from writing C++ now... Does the book read like a specification manual or a tutorial? Honestly I would almost prefer the specification manual, I hate getting talked down too... But on the other hand incomprehensible specs aren't too good either. -brian _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
