9780139774300: Optimizing C++

The programmer-friendly guide to maximizing C++ application performance!
An algorithm that provides efficient random access to variable-length records.
CD-ROM contains all code and examples, including an efficient sorting algorithm that can increase the performance of large databases.
Dynamic hashing, data and text compression, caching, and much more.
Up-to-the-minute coverage reflects ANSI Standard C++. For professional software developers, getting a program to work is just the beginning- it must work efficiently, making the most of limited time, memory and disk space. This book explains and illustrates a series of algorithms that can dramatically improve the efficiency of many C++ programs. Coverage includes data compression; dynamic hashing and caching; stripfiles, bitmaps and arithmetic coding. Among the books powerful algorithms, the author presents a little-known sorting algorithm that can dramatically increase the sort performance of large databases. In addition, he presents an advanced hashing algorithm that dynamically resizes its capacity. The book presents many real-life examples based on practical experience, and its written to be "programmer-friendly," with no unexplained jargon.
Steve Hellerhas been a professional programmer for 25 years, and is author of Whos Afraid of C++? Heller is President of Chrysalis Software Corporation in Plano, TX.

The programmer-friendly guide to maximizing C++ application performance!

Getting a program to work is just the beginning: it must work efficiently, making the most of limited time, memory, and disk space. Now, legendary programmer Steve Heller —author of the best-seller Who's Afraid of C++?— introduces a collection of power house algorithms that can supercharge virtually any C++ program. From streamlining random access to variable-length records to speeding large database sorts, you'll find it here-along with practical, “nothing-left-out” explanations. Coverage includes:

  • Advanced dynamic hashing and caching algorithms.
  • Bitmaps and other data compression techniques.
  • Fast-sorting algorithms that use memory efficiently.

Based on the new ANSI C++ standard, this “programmer-friendly” book includes extensive real-life examples and code samples - all personally typeset by the author to minimize the chance of error. If you want to squeeze every last drop of performance out of your C++ code, Optimizing C++ is the book you've been waiting for!

The accompanying CD-ROM includes a complete collection of Steve Heller's Optimizing C++ algorithms, plus an industrial-strength C++ compiler.
