I have been looking on Amazon for a book to teach myself C++ and am wondering if anyone can help?
I have a good understanding of programming, but unfortunately only of relatively obsolete languages and need to learn languages that will be more useful within industry, so I do not need to learn how to program e.t.c, just the C++ language.
From what I can gather C is a procedural language, whereas C++ is Object Orientated, is it worth learning both for industry or just C++? I know this can depend on what type of programming I plan to do, but at the moment I don't know.
Also there are many different types of C, mainly just different compilers, but again which one should I choose? Which one would be the most useful?
Finally getting back to my original point of which book to choose, the problem is that every author and his dog seem to have written a book on C programming! There are literally thousands to choose from, any ideas?
