    They actually make pretty good reading
    Hey, I never thought of that! Interesting, I will check it out, thanks!

    I did both Pascal and Turbo Pascal, but mostly the former, so no real OO experience in Pascal.

    I actually got "Programming, Principles and Practice Using C++" from Bjarne Stroustrup in the mail yesterday (finally!) and just gotten started in it (read the introductional chapters), will post back if I get to the hands-on section, but so far their practical no BS style looks appealing! I'm quite swamped with work lately, so it could take a while tough...

    glad I found this thread! I just got back on campus, and was considering starting to hack again. Took a just-plain-old C class a few years back, and I brought the book with me to try and get back in the habit. The plan was to thumb through that, then go to C++ and Qt (thinking about contributing to the desktop I've used for ages).

    Does anyone have any words on The Design and Evolution of C++? I don't truthfully like C++, but it seems like an intriguing book nonetheless. I should rather like it were Dennis Ritchie to write a similar volume.
