[3.2] Is there a big difference between this on-line C++ FAQ and the C++ FAQ Book?

Yes.

Here are some of the differences:

  • The C++ FAQ Book is a complete, from-scratch write-up with three authors. It's not even close to a hardcopy of this on-line document.
  • The C++ FAQ Book covers different topics than this on-line document.
  • The C++ FAQ Book is organized differently, with topics arranged in a different order, from this on-line document.
  • The C++ FAQ Book covers a number of those topics in greater depth than this on-line document.
  • The C++ FAQ Book contains many more programming examples than this on-line document.
  • The C++ FAQ Book has programming examples that are complete, compilable programs, in contrast with the snippets typical in this on-line document.
  • The C++ FAQ Book was indexed by a professional indexer, while this on-line document is indexed by your's truly.
