in thread (Perl) Programming Books like the Camel Book

Mind my asking which of Herbert Schildt's C++ books? My C++ library is terrible, including only two reference-type books that I picked up at a library book sale. They are not very good at all.

Now that I think about it, if I could find a high-quality C++ reference and a best practices guide I'd be pretty happy.

    Sure! The C++ book I refer to is C++: The Complete Reference

    I would not consider either book a 'best practices' book as the code samples are distilled down to the bare essentials necessary to show what a function does... they're references, pure and un-cluttered.

[moritz]: seems there's a size limit for hostenum, and the error message just sucks
[vrk]: None, other than the location of the error: auto/NetAddr/IP/
[vrk]: Aha, there's a reference to "bug report 82719" in NetAddr/'s sub _splitref.
[moritz]: wow, that's their idea of an "improved error message"
[moritz]: how about "This network is too large to enumerate all host addresses." or so?
[vrk]: Well, there's a call to notcontiguous() before the error, whose description is "counts the bit positions remaining in the mask when the rightmost '0's are removed"
[vrk]: Clear as mud!
