|C++ Templates, Second Edition: FAQ|
This page contains typical questions and answers
regarding the C++ Templates,
by David Vandevoorde, Nicolai M. Josuttis, and Douglas Gregor .
"David" vs. "Daveed"
Q: Why is the first name of Vandevoorde sometimes "David" and sometimes "Daveed"
A: The official spelling of
his first name is "David" but because his native language is French,
the pronounciation is closer to how "Daveed" is pronounced in English.
Some friends of Vandevoorde started using the "Daveed" spelling in
the early nineties and he has kept that spelling for informal writing.
Pronounciation of Josuttis
Q: How can I pronounce your last name, Josuttis?
A: I am not familiar with
phonetic symbols, but I can describe it by comparing the letters with common
J, like "yes" without "es"
o, like "open" without "pen"
s, like "has" without "ha" (not the sharp form of "s")
u, like "to" without "t"
tt, like "but" without "bu"
is, like the word "is"
