The size of a class can be changed simply by playing with the order of its members' declaration: struct A { bool a; int b; bool c; }; /*sizeof (A) == 12*/ On my machine, sizeof (A) equals 12. This result might seem surprising because the total size of A's members is only 6...

Polymorphism is in short the ability to call different functions by just using one type of function call. It is a lot useful since it can group classes and their functions together. It is the most important part of Object-Oriented Programming. Polymorphism is the core of object-oriented programming...

Introduction To Binary Trees A binary tree is made of nodes, where each node contains a "left" pointer, a "right" pointer, and a data element. The "root" pointer points to the topmost node in the tree. The left and right pointers recursively point to smaller "subtrees" on either side. A null...

Templates, which are sometimes called parameterized types, are mechanisms for generating functions and classes based on type parameters. By using templates, you can design a single class or function that operates on data of many types, instead of having to create a separate class for each type. ...
