[3.2] Is there a big difference between C++ FAQ Lite and C++ FAQ Book? UPDATED!

[Recently rewrote (on 3/00) and changed 'much' to 'many' thanks to Stan Brown (on 7/00). Click here to go to the next FAQ in the "chain" of recent changes.]

Yes there is a big difference.

At last count, the C++ FAQ Book is 500% larger than the C++ FAQ Lite.

Bottom line: the book and this Lite document are not the same. The book is both broader and deeper — it covers subjects that aren't covered in this Lite document, and it covers subjects in more detail than this Lite document.

In addition, the book has lots and lots of programming examples — many more than are in this Lite document.
