Ray Lischner has been using C++ for more than a decade. He worked at Mentor Graphics when it was the first company to adopt C++ for a major commercial project. Since the early days, he has witnessed and participated in the advance of the cfront translator to native compilers to integrated development environments, and now to visual, component-based tools. Ray has taught C++ at Oregon State University, in an introductory CS course and in a more advanced programming projects course. He is the author of O'Reilly's Delphi in a Nutshell and other books. His most recent writing project was for Borland C++ Builder.
