If I were to teach programming to my son..... my wife would shoot me... she wants a doctor, not an IT geek! :( So consider yourselves lucky...

@Fred, that's interesting to know, I've always thought cplusplus was a good reference (downside is their source of advertising - which is highly inappropriate!), now I'll have to remember to cross reference with the sgi reference.

If I find the language of a book too dry and uninteresting, irrespective of how "essential" the book is, I immediately discard it... as a result, I only own one C++ book, and that is Stroustrup (okay, it's not exactly the most riveting read, but it is "essential"!) :)

comment Do you think code is self documenting?
Not sure I get your question, "self documenting code" typically describes well written and easy to understand (the intention of) code, not really related to progress AFAIK... Some developers use this approach rather than commenting code...

comment How would you refactor nested IF Statements?
You only need to tweak your logic and re-organize, return if !Check#1.
