Why should we always catch exceptions by reference?

Do you use exceptions in your code? Do you always catch the most generic one or do you write multiple catch blocks? Do you rethrow them or just swallow the exceptions right after they occur? Do you...

The big STL Algorithms tutorial: modifying sequence operations - turn things around

In this next part of the big STL algorithm tutorial, we will continue with two algorithms that help us to reverse the order of elements in a range: reverse reverse_copy Let’s get started! ...

Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software by Charles Petzold

If you have been reading my book reviews, you know that I like history. Recently I wrote about Sapiens and I quoted Churchill - you know the guy who pretty much led the fight against Nazis - saying...

I’m still not looking for a new job, and - given the circumstances - luckily I don’t even have to. Still, after having met some people and having received a couple of interesting propositions I rea...

The big STL Algorithms tutorial: modifying sequence operations - remove calls

In this next part of the big STL algorithm tutorial, we will discover the 4 modifying sequence algorithms that will help you removing elements from containers: remove remove_if remove_copy...
