Accelerated C++ is here: http://www.amazon.com/Accelerated-Practical-Programming-Exam...

And, of course, there's the STL, but it's more a reference than a how-to: http://www.sgi.com/tech/stl/

For an STL reference, I find the one pointed to by bayareaguy (http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/) easier to browse.

Yeah, it's easier to browse, but it confounds wget for some reason, making it nearly impossible to save for offline viewing. The SGI reference is available in a tarball, even.

You prefer doing that? I just have a bookmark on my toolbar. I never code without an internet connection, so it's easier to look at it online than store it locally.

Yeah. I have why's guide, the function info from php.net, the erlang guide, and a few others.

The best way to learn a new language, I find, is in a park on a sunny day, without being distracted by IM or email or… ahem… news voting sites ;)

I find the best way to learn a language is to do it when I should be getting other work done.

Sunny parks are not meant to have computers in them.
