I would ignore C++0x for now. I'm not sure if it has been published yet, but many of the new features won't be available portably for a couple of years. Instead, focus on C++98 and C++03. Neither were available at the time that book was written, so I'd probably look for a more recent reference. Prior to C++98, there was no standard for the C++ language. You might also be interested in the C99 specifications -- they are not directly related to C++, but C++ is built upon some C and C99 is must more well-specified than C89 (the basis of C++98).  Depending on what you consider a standard. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
