Reference, yes ... I had this interesting C/C++ book called "Jamsa's C/C++ Programmer's Bible" (The Ultimate Guide to C/C++ Programming) ... "Klander&Jamsa" as the professor says when he want's you do some reading ... the only problem was that it is apparently a computer compilation of some sort where the organization of text of the 2"-thick hardcopy is laced with graphic inclusions like flags and icon representations; all the printed pages have background graphic image banners (of god-knows what origin symbolically). Ultimately, while making simple distinctions between C and C++ ... this was 1998 mind you ... comprehensible, the repeated jargonization of the "message" lead the reader into quickly abandoning it's use except for repeated lookup of terms.

It became for me hardcopy where I'd go to find something in short explanation when Barne became too convoluted to understand or his examples, like his calculator, seemed too broad in scope. Like the Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 volume (6x) only condensed into the one doorstop.

Obviously written by a HAL 9000 ...

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
