This book greatly expands the public domain "Ellemtel" C++ coding standard. Guidelines have been carefully selected and concisely formulated to define a C++ coding standard that should be valid and usable for almost all programmers. Text and code examples explain each individual rule and recommendation. Adopting this book as the company C++ coding standard helps remove an obstacle when trying to be certified for ISO 9000 or CMM. The book covers naming conventions, code organization, resource management, class interface design, object-oriented programming, conversions, error handling, portability, coding style.

The book provides C++ programmers with a practical approach to code optimization. The text consists of case studies of database problems with various searching and compression algorithms, the source code, and explanation of the solutions.
The objective is to present modern C++ idioms to programmers who have moderate level of familiarity with C++, and help elevate their knowledge so that C++ feels much friendlier to them. It is designed to be an exhaustive catalog of reusable idioms.
