If you want to improve your C++ programming potential, this complete sourcebook will provide you with the expertise and ready-to-use programs required to take full advantage of C++ in implementing object-oriented designs. Ideal for use in a variety of operating environments, this practical guide focuses on three important programming paradigms constraints programming - for graphics layout, CAD, and solving routing problems; genetic algorithms - for search and optimization; and neural networks - for building classification and control systems. For each paradigm the book offers you a wealth of real-world application examples that go beyond the syntax of the language. There is also a set of useful and reusable C++ classes with each paradigm that can significantly shorten the development time of non trivial programs. C++ Power Paradigms includes a 3-1/2" disk containing all the sample code cited in the book in both Mac and IBM versions (supplied on a DOS-format disk)
It's all here in one convenient source - the C++ information and tools you need to enhance your object-oriented design skills!
