Since its creation, C++ evolved continuously and it passed many major milestones from the C with classes to the rise of the new standards. From 1991 to 2011 the language evolved slowly and the evolution comes from the libraries like STL and Boost. However, from 2011 many features were added to the standard, thanks to the new standards C++11, C++14, C++17, and the coming C++20. Continue reading “C++ 17 In Detail Book Review”
The refactoring is defined as the process of changing a software system in such a way that it does not alter the external behavior of the code yet improves its internal structure.
We can enumerate three decisions made by the managers concerning the code refactoring: Continue reading “Modernize C++ Codebase: Banned C++ Features Guide”
In 1998 a proposal for a C++ Library Repository Web Site was posted by Beman G. Dawes. The original vision aims to satisfy two major goals:
- A world-wide website containing a repository of free C++ class libraries would be of great benefit to the C++ community. Although other sites supply specific libraries or provide links to libraries, there is currently no well-known website that acts as a general repository for C++ libraries. The vision is this: a site where programmers can find the libraries they need, post libraries they would like to share, and which can act as a focal point to encourage innovative C++ library development. An online peer review process is envisioned to ensure library quality with a minimum of bureaucracy.
- Secondary goals include encouraging effective programming techniques and providing a focal point for C++ programmers to participate in a wider community. Additionally, such a site might foster C++ standards activity by helping to establish existing practice.
In a previous post we talked about the clang-tidy tool to detect where you can use some new C++11/C++14/C++17 features to modernize your C++ source code. But how we can easily detect where the new C++ features are used in a project?
Facebook and Google use intensively C++11 in their source code. Folly from Facebook as we discovered in a previos post use almost all the C++11 features and I was curious to know if Microsoft also use the new C++11 standards in their open sourced code.
