Welcome to the Web page for Cay S. Horstmann, Computing
Concepts with C++ Essentials, 2nd edition.
- The code library in ZIP
and TAR format. It auto-senses all recent
versions of the Borland, Microsoft, Symantec and Gnu compilers. No
switches to set--just compile and
go. The library supports Windows graphics, DOS graphics (BGI), X11
graphics and "ASCII art".
If you don't yet have a program to open a ZIP file, I recommend that
you get WinZip. After unzipping,
you will find installation instructions in the file README.TXT.
NOTE: This is the code for the second edition
. The first edition code library is different--go to http://www.horstmann.com/ccc1e.html.

- The Wiley web
page for my books. Look there for instructor resources.
- If C++ isn't your first language choice for CS1, check out Computing Concepts with Java Essentials ! It
teaches the same concepts with the same pedagogy, but it uses Java as
the implementation language.
