     ; Reading the book...
          Afr0's decided on his book.
          If you're following his line of upcoming teaching
          posts, make sure you have a copy of
          'C++ Programming for the Absolute Beginner'
          
          Afr0 hasn't said which edition he has, but Agent
          Smith's already got the 2nd Edition, so you should
          probably go for that.
