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.]"

    Same here - Our school was transitioning from Pascal to C++ during my stay, so later classes were taught using C++. However, I always preferred C, and stuck with that throughout undergrad.

    Years later I now get to work on a C++ project again, and it's like a completely different language to me. I now see references& in addition to the stack and heap objects of my youth and I don't really know yet whether I need to do anything special to clean up after them.

    Add to that some rather strange syntax like "Class variable(constructor args)", interfaces in an .h file, but code in implementation files (verbosely scope resolved) AND in the interface file - all that makes me glad I normally do Java.
