Object oriented programming is a design philosophy. In programming paradigm, object oriented programming is the process by which a problem is decomposed into a number of entities called object and then data and functions are built around these objects. The main advantages of OOP are: ...

I constantly study the Web regarding new articles on C/C++/C++11 programming. If I find them interesting, I post links to them in twitter @Code_Analysis, on Reddit /r/Viva64 and like them on StumbleUpon. If you are present on one of these websites, I invite you to follow me. You will find a lot of...

In C, memory allocations on heap are done using following three library methods void *malloc(size_t size); void *calloc(size_t nmemb, size_t size); void *realloc(void *ptr, size_t size); Though, most commonly used is malloc() The corresponding free-ing the memory...

Virtual functions in C++ play an important role. To understand virtual function, one should be clear about the polymorphism feature of C++ language as an object oriented language. In brevity, polymorphism is the weapon through which we can identify a function call through its parameters, or...

Operator overloading is an extremely exciting feature of C++ language that allows you to simplify complex code into more readable and easy to understand code. For example what if we want to add two objects? Usually we will define some addition function that takes object to be added as a parameter...

Inheritance is an extremely useful and exciting object oriented programming feature. Inheritance allows you to organize and reuse code effectively. Think of inheritance from a general perspective. Take your example; you inherit several characteristics from your parents. If your parents are tall,...

Programs you code reside in random access memory or commonly known as RAM. RAM is also known as volatile memory space. What happens is that when you run a program, your CPU selects corresponding files to execute from your hard drive and loads it into memory. A problem here arises that the data of...

Whenever you hear the word virtual, the first thing which comes to your mind is something that only exists in appearance but in reality you cannot physically see or touch that thing. A virtual function in C++ is a similar concept. Virtual functions lays at the heart of object oriented programming...

In my previous articles, I had introduces you to some of the fundamental concepts of the C++ language. However, you would have noticed that all the code we wrote, resided in a single file. We developed object oriented programs where we used multiple classes, but all those classes were in a single...

Multithreading is one of the most fascinating feature of modern day programming. If you are not familiar with multithreading then most probably you have been writing programs that are single threaded. By single threaded program we mean such a program where program instructions run in a sequence and...

Today I am going to explain another very important C++ concept: ’The Data Type Conversion in C++’. C++ has wide variety of data types ranging from the basic or primitive data types to the user defined data types. In this article, we are going to explain that how we convert these data types to...

In this article we are going to explain some of the most fundamental but often neglected concepts of C++ programming language. These concepts are extremely interesting and if employed well, can solve complex mathematical problems. So, without wasting any more time, let us jump to the first concept...

C++ is by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979. It was created as an enhancement to the C language. It is a combination of higher and low level programming language. It is a superset of the C language. It is case sensitive and provides support to generic and procedural programming concepts. Object oriented...

Releasing memory allocated in heap has been always been a concern for programming languages like C and C++. Memory leak is a side effect of using dynamic memory allocation in C++. This is because C++ compiler does not support automatically release memory allocated in heap when they are no more...

To understand usage of auto and decltype keyword you need to know the existing type deduction facility available in C++98, because auto and decltype are C++11/C++14 extension to the existing feature of the compiler to deduce type from another expression. In case you are not aware of existing type...

C++ always has been creating fast programs, still there were loop holes which could substantially slow down C++ programs until C++11. This was due to temporary object creation and expensive object copies. C++11 added a new reference type called 'rvalue reference' and a new concept of moving object...

We know that C++11 added the feature of rvalue reference. Here assumption is that the reader is already familiar with rvalue and lvalue and their references. As we know that we declare rvalue reference with double ampersand like: int&& var1 = 10; // var1 is an rvalue reference variable means it...
