This book provides students with an introduction to C++ that enlists their Java programming skills to get them comfortably programming in C++. It is an appropriate supplement for any upper-level course in which students are required to program in C++, or for anyone with experience in Java who is interested in an introduction to C++. The text starts off by teaching how to perform tasks in C++ that are inherent in Java, such as pointers and memory management. It then builds upon their Java experience to teach language features like class definitions and polymorphism, which are slightly different in C++. Finally, aspects of C++ that have no correlation in Java - as well as those aspects of Java not found in C++ - are presented.
