pinBeyond ACCU... Patterns on the 'net

Overload Journal #27 - Aug 1998 + Internet Topics   Author: John Merrells

C++

http://www.research.att.com/work/

This site alone is enough to keep you occupied all month, as long as you can do without eating or sleeping.

C++ and OOP articles by Bjarne Stroustrup can be downloaded.

  • A brief look at C++

  • A Perspective on ISO C++

  • What is "Object-Oriented Programming"?

  • Why C++ is not just an Object-Oriented Programming Language.

The site also has software tools that can be acquired, usually by Universities.

The Role of Patterns in Enterprise Architecture

www.sgi.com/Technology/STL/other_resources.html

A collection of STL links.

http://www.cyberdyne-object-sys.com/oofaq2/

Object FAQ. An ambitious web site that is being built around a FAQ.

Article source

http://www.byte.com/art/art.htm

BYTE articles archive. There are plenty of "brochure-ware" web sites for magazines but this seems to be one of the useful sites.

Bulk sites

These are sites providing masses of links or huge archives of files.

http://sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk/

Plenty of material to keep UK web surfers occupied, this site is invaluable when the internet slows down to a crawl.

http://www.devinfo.com

"The developer information site" by Christopher Sokol, a gold mine of links for archives & languages.

http://www.jumbo.com/pages/developer/

A large archive of files, not just for development. I found it easier to navigate by using

http://www.devinfo.com/operating_/index.html.

It covers Linux, Mac-OS, MS-Dos, NeXTStep, OS/2, Unix and Windows

http://www.devinfo.com/networking/rfcs/index.html

An Internet Standards repository. This set of RFCs define how the internet interoperates.

http://developer.intel.com/design

Intel has a web site for developers. Strangely Intel is offering free CD copies of its website. I think this kind of behaviour should be encouraged - instead of having common downloads clogging up the internet, free CDs and magazine CDs are a good distribution medium.

Compiler resources

http://cuiwww.unige.ch/freecomp

Free compiler list can be searched or viewed by category. Worth visiting and searching for key items of interest - you may stumble across something you ought to know about. Unfortunately it is no longer being maintained...

www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/9498/watcom.html

Good source of Watcom C/C++ links.

http://www.cygnus.com/misc/gnu-win32/

GNU-Win32 - NT/95 port of the GNU development tools.

The GNU-Win32 tools are Win32 ports of the popular GNU development tools for Windows NT and 95. They function through the use of the Cygwin32 library which provides a UNIX-like API on top of the Win32 API.

  • Develop Win32 console or GUI applications, using the Win32 API.

  • Port significant UNIX programs to Windows NT/95 with few changes.

  • Use many common UNIX utilities (from the bash shell or the standard Win32 shell).

Next issue... Java ?
