Best C++ Books

Once in a while someone will ask me which book is best to start learning programming. The fact is that I do not know because I'm already an advanced programmer and it's rather difficult for me to get back to the basics (it feels like a waste of my time, sorry...)

That being said, at Made to Order Software, we've mainly been a C++ shop. We also do a lot of C, PHP, JavaScript and touch many other languages as required by the tasks we perform (bash, cmake, perl, C#, Java, etc.)

That being said, I wanted to underline some of the best C++ books available today. Especially, in the last ...

Simplemenu Upgrade Path

Version 7.x

Version 7.x-1.x-dev is a starting point... It is not complete, although it shows you a functional Management menu as a dropdown. More to come as time allows... See issue [#791664] for more info.

Version 6.x

Version 6.x-1.13 fixes the vertical menu problem which had to do with CSS caching getting lost.

Version 6.x-1.10 to 6.x-1.12 fixes the non-called theme() function versus the other sub-modules that have callbacks through the theme() calls. However, we really need to have callbacks instead. Added horizontal and vertical themes. Attempts to fix to the vertical menu problem

Insert Node Parameter: webform (6-1.3)

Insert the form of a webform node. With this parameter you include the form that you defined in a webform in any node. The complete form will be included and fully functional. Remember, however, that the destination on save defined in the webform will be effective here too (although the default is to stay on the same page, which works as expected.)

The parameter is ignored if the referenced node is not a webform or if the webform module is not enabled.

Help for To Do List End Users

Introduction

To Do List Help IconThis page documents the usage of the To Do List module to end users (i.e. not how to install and setup the module, but how to create To Do List items, share them, mark them started/finished, etc.)

For administrative information check out the To Do List module help.

Insert Node Parameter: demote (6-1.2) [no content]

Demote (positive) or promote (negative) the headers found in the output before inserting it into your node.

This is useful if you want to include a complete node that has an H1 title, H2 sub-titles, etc. and make these sub-titles of your current page, maybe starting at H3 (i.e. using "... demote=2; ..." in your tag.)

By default, the value of this parameter is expected to be 1. To change the value use the following syntax:

   demote=<integer>;

The integer can be negative, in which case it promotes the headers (i.e. H3 can be changed to H1 using "... demote=-2;

Wait For Frame

Wait until the frame specified in f_frame is fully loaded to execute actions right after this one. Otherwise skip the specified number of actions. This is most often used with a Goto Frame like in:

Next Frame
Wait for Frame #10
  (otherwise skip 1 action)
Goto Frame #5

End

This will usually be used to display some

SWF Internal Functions

Since Flash version 5, you can use internal functions (really member functions or methods of internal objects.) These functions are always available. These methods are called using the Call Function action with the name of the object and function separated by a period. A few of these internal functions are duplicates of some direct action script instructions. In general, it is preferred to use these internal functions rather than the direct action. However, direct actions are a good way to optimize your ActionScript code.

Similarly, you can access internal constants (really variable ...
