Odyssey 5 :C++ & Graphics:The Future of C- Today as developments in language and languages and techniques move in quantum leaps and bounds, the spotlight is steadily zeroing in on objects and object –oriented programming.
For those firmly entrenched in worlds of yore, for those afraid to reach out and embrace the new, the realm of C++,would seem like an esoteric and misty world, but for the adventurous, for the man unafraid of the challenge of change, the field is full of potential.
Two abstract themes have been combined in this volume for unrestrained journey of the mind.
