The C++ Standard Library


What every professional C++ programmer should know about the C++ standard library.


With C++11, C++14, and C++17 we have a lot of new C++ libraries. In addition to that, the existing ones are greatly improved. The key idea of my book is to give you the necessary information on the current C++ libraries in about 250 pages.

The book is an improved version of my German book "C++ Standardbibliothek" published by O'Reilly.


The goal of this quick reference is to provide a concise reference of the C++ standard library. This book assumes that you are familiar with C++. If so you will get the most benefit out of this book. If C++ is totally new to you, you should start with a textbook about core C++. Once you have mastered a textbook about the core language, you can make your next big step by reading this  book. To make your job easier, I have provided a lot of short code snippets to connect theory and practice.



  • pdf: 200 pages

Arguably the quickest and easiest way to get up to speed on the most important parts of the C++ standard library. Recommended for any modern C++ programmer.
