C++ Question

Links to official style guides

C++ has several types of styles: MFC, Boost, Google, etc. I would like to examine these styles and determine which one is best for my projects, but I want to read from the official style guidebook. Does anyone have an official guide that they typically use?

Here are two that I found. I bet there are more:



Note: This is NOT a discussion about which style is best... only a call for official style guides that people currently use. Please refrain from bashing other style guides that you don't like.

Side question: Is there a good tool that can examine source code and tell if it matches a given style guide?

Answer

Not a Coding Guideline per se, but I find this mighty useful: Bjarne Stroustrup's C++ Style and Technique FAQ
