Can anyone recommend a good reference on C++? It would be particularly
nice if there were a "C++ For CLOS Hackers," or some such. I have a
small amount of C++ experience, but I want to come up to full speed as
quickly as possible for a new project. Thanks.
I too have been looking for "C++ For CLOS Hackers". While I haven't
found anything suitable I can tell you that Stroustrup's books  are
among the most opaque imaginable. Lippman  came recommended, but
is of the standard variety aimed at C programmers.
Please pass on any tips you get.
 Stroustrup, Bjarne "The C++ Programming Language" Addison Wesley ISBN 0-201-12078-X
Ellis, Margaret A. and Stroustrup Bjarne "The Annotated C++ Reference Manual"
Addison Wesley ISBN 0-201-51459-1
 Lippman, Stanley B. "C++ Primer" Addison Wesley ISBN 0-201-16487-6
You should have at least one of these books for reference about the
language. I use Lippman's. To actually program, i recommend one or both of
 Scott Meyers "Effective C++" Addison Wesley, 1992. IBSN 0-201-56364-9
This book helps you over the first 50 pitfalls in the language.
 James O. Coplien, Advanced C++, Addison-Wesley, 1992 IBSN 0-201-54855-0
This book covers things that a Lisper is used to, like garbage
collection and incremental loading.
