Two Nice C++ Programming Guides

Here are two nice C++ Programming Guides: one is a style guide and the other is an overview of the most important feaures of the C++ programming language. These will help you become a better and more effective C++ programmer and application developer.

C++ Programming Style Guide

Exerpt from this guide: "Good style is like touch typing: it may seem counter-productive at first, but the initial effort will pay enormous dividends. After a little while, the elements of good style will be second nature. Good style will help you to debug your programs more easily, and also make them more easily readable by your instructor." From the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Denison University.  (11 pages, 35kb, pdf format)

C++ Overview

This document, from Rice University, is an overview of the C++ programming language for those with little or no experience with it. It can also be used as a reference for more experienced C++ programmers. It assumes you are experienced in programming with some other programming language. It describes several important features of the C++ language that you need to know and presents coding examples, from which you should be able to determine the general rules of writing C++ programs.  (48 pages, 398kb, pdf format)

7) I.T. Sites and Free Downloads Worth Mentioning: 

The following programs are totally Free, no popups, no adware, no spyware, and no shareware.


Seeker is a search and replace tool that enables you to search and replace text within files that match your criteria. The program offers an easy to understand interface with basic options that allow you to filter target files by name, size and date. The text replacement is limited to simple one-line words or phrases (not suitable for larger text blocks), but it also supports regular expressions.


Copernic Desktop Search

Copernic Desktop Search allows you to instantly find files, emails, images, multimedia and more, that are located on your PC (not the Internet). It creates an initial index of your hard drive and provides an attractive and easy to use search interface that returns results instantly, as soon as you type in your keyword. It provides image thumbnails for picture matches, integrated preview with keyword highlighting and more. Copernic Desktop Search can also (optionally) index your web surfing history, as well as Contacts and Favorites. A very nice and easy to use tool to find files on your computer.


Free Monitor for Google

Free Monitor for Google is an easy to use web site promotion aid for webmasters. It allows you to find and track your position in the Google search engine results for specified keywords. You can keep track of multiple sites and also keep the result statistics, allowing you to see when your position drops. The program offers two modes, one for quick checking, which also displays the found results and a second mode for long term tracking and multiple keywords.


Link Popularity Check

Link Popularity Check is a handy tool for website owners that allows you to check your link popularity and compare it to your competitiors as well as a list of major internet web sites (, etc). It displays the results in an easy to reads, color coded report window and also provides some tips for improving your link popularity. The popularity check is based on results from Google,HotBot, AllTheWeb and MSN search.


Keyword Crawler

Keyword Crawler enables you to explore your website from the view of a search engine. It crawls your pages and generates a list of keywords that were found and list them in order of occurrence. In addition, it can count and display internal links and broken links, word density, and retrieve the Google page rank for each page. Keyword Crawler can also generate a Google XML sitemap for you.


Trialware Submit (TSubmit)

Trialware Submit (TSubmit) is a program that aids developers in submitting their trial software to software download sites. The program includes a browser window to allow site submission from within the program itself. Software authors can easily visit a software site s home, search, submit and update pages. TSubmit can be used to keep track of sites submitted to, published and previously published. The program includes all company and program information stored in a convenient tabbed dialog screen, from where it can be copied to the clipboard and filled into the submission form.


8) Question of the Month about Technical Training:

Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and IT training and career development.

June 2008 Question of the Month: 

Can you recommend a programming language comparison guide that is easy to read, but still gives in-depth information on the similarities and differences among the various programming languages available to choose from?

Yes, here is a very well written one-page document that compares and contrasts many programming languages: Programming Language Comparison, by Jason Voegele. This is one of the best comparisons that I have seen lately. He compares nine languages in the following features or topics:  Object-Orientation, Static / Dynamic Typing, Generic Classes, Inheritance, Feature Renaming, Method Overloading, Operator Overloading, Higher Order Functions, Lexical Closures, Garbage Collection, Uniform Access, Class Variables / Methods, Reflection, Access Control, Design by Contract, Multithreading, Regular Expressions, Pointer Arithmetic, Language Integration, Built-In Security, and Capers Jones Language Level

I hope this helps you.
