    Re: literal string

    Zio, as 2kaud said, that book is ancient.
    If you come to a job interview with me, and you don't know anything about modern C++ (C++11, C++14, and C++17), then you'll fail the interview.
    This is a very serious problem with your university. Try to discuss it with them. No company needs C++98 programmers, but need modern C++ programmers.

    Re: literal string

    Arjay, there are lots of good books on modern C++
    My book, Professional C++ 4th Edition, does include almost all C++11, C++14, and C++17 features, but it requires at least some basic programming knowledge.

    Re: literal string

    For English books from which to learn c++ before moving to Marc's excellent book, have at look at posts #9, #10, #11 of http://forums.codeguru.com/showthrea...-books-about-C (note the info was correct as of August 2017 - there may be later versions of some of these books available and they don't all cover c++17). My personal favourite is Beginning C++17 by Ivor Horton (no connection) - and by comparison to some c++ books is quite reasonably priced!.

    For Italian books on c++, sorry?? But you're looking for a book that covers/includes c++17. I can't see any listed on amazon.co.uk.

    From my travels with The Doctor, I can confidently say that c++32 is considered 'modern' and that c++17 is referred to as 'that antiquated version'

    I'm very surprised because I expected university was more updated, I studied some C ( book of W. Kernighan, Dennis M. Ritchie) several years ago, in 1990, but how it's possible to start again the studies from the same date!

    [Warning - rant ahead]

    We've come across this before regarding some other universities. Their 'professors' produce a syllabus/course notes (or even better, use someone else's) and just continue to teach the same old same old year in, year out. The students know no better - unless they ask questions like on this forum. The 'professors' have tenure, they get the students, have no pressure to learn new things themselves - so don't bother as they needn't. So what if their students can't get jobs afterwards as they haven't been taught correctly - doesn't affect them.
