What are your favorite books on C/C++. The ones that you reach for first when you have a question, the ones that first made you understand the language, the ones that advanced your know of the language the most.
Feel free to list as many as you like and to give your reasons for liking them so much.
i personally like the complete reference series by herbert schildt ant the how to program by deitel and deitel.
any way, the gcc compiler is the best compiler i have used, including turbo c++ (really hopeless) and visual c++ in windows

I also got it for a couple bucks used
