"Herb Sutter has consolidated the C++ FAQ (formerly maintained by Bjarne and others in various places). The FAQ has also been restructured and now available at the official ISO-C++ homepage:"

tkd-physics elaborates:

"The Standard C++ Foundation has put together a new 'unified' C++ FAQ, combining Marshall Cline's popular FAQ, Bjarne Stroustrup's FAQ pages, and many other sources. Check out for the announcement. [Note I've already found a few places where the integration of all these sources is less than perfect. I suspect it will be a little while before all the necessary editing is complete. They are accepting both suggestions and volunteers.]"

    This new C++ FAQ is definitely ready for people to use, I don't think there's likely to be anything *wrong* or *misleading* in it. It's just that there may be some duplicate entries. The thing I found was that the "list of free C++ compilers" was woefully incomplete, while the list of compilers in "Where can I find more info about my compiler" is pretty good; these need to be merged.

    There are a lot of sources that can tell you what C++ is; some of the other comments refer to these. There are fewer sources for *how and why* to use it. Scott Meyers' books, for example, are in this category. From what I've seen (which was just a quick look), the FAQ covers both areas, but is more about the latter: how to solve problems in idiomatic C++, *why* all this stuff is in the language, and so forth.
