Introduction In C++ programs there is use of common data structures like stacks, queues and lists. A program may require a queue of customers and a queue of messages. One could easily implement a queue of customers, then take the existing code and implement a queue of messages. The program...

It's a truly neutral question: given that there are many languages to choose from, why do you choose to program in C++? 1. Compared to many of the other OO languages (i.e. Java, C# etc.), C++ has better support for the functional programming style. 2. Good support for generic programming. ...

Introduction Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a programming language model organized around "objects" rather than "actions" and data rather than logic. Historically, a program has been viewed as a logical procedure that takes input data, processes it, and produces output data. The...

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 Variables are seen as memory cells that can be accessed using their identifiers. This way we did not have to care about the physical location of our data within memory, we simply used its identifier whenever we wanted to refer to our variable. The memory of your computer can be...

Three major concepts of C++ are Classes, Polymorphism, Inheritance.Let us discuss them in details. Classes A class is the implementation of an abstract data type. It defines attributes and methods which implement the data structure and operations of the abstract data type, respectively....

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...

Memory pools allow dynamic memory allocation comparable to malloc or the Operator new in C++. As those implementations suffer from fragmentation because of variable block sizes, it can be impossible to use them in a real time system due to performance. A more efficient solution is preallocating a...

Casts are used to convert the type of an object, expression, function argument, or return value to that of another type. Some conversions are performed automatically by the compiler without intervention by the programmer. These conversions are called implicit conversions. The standard C++...

Q: What are traditional C++ (pre-standard) headers? A: The traditional C++ (pre-standard) headers define classes, values, macros, and functions in headers that have *.h extension. This includes non-standard STL headers with *.h extension (iostream.h, fstream.h, vector.h, etc.) and C headers with...

Many of us might have wondered at sometime or the other about how to pass a variable number of arguments to C++ functions : something like a printf function. I don't know how many are aware of this, so I decided to post an article on this topic. Background When a function is declared, the...

Introduction Many times you may have wondered how to return several values from a C++ function. I know it's easy for most of you when you know "how many" values your func is going to return. I have seen many people use std::pair to return two values from a func. But what about the case when you...

The misconception that C++ is an advance C still prevails among developers and so let me try to clarify that C++ only inherits some syntax from C and nothing more than that. Before I get into the details about the difference between C and C++ programming let me clarify a myth, which is, you need to...
