C++ Programming: A Better Vector Trim Algorithm With Move Semantics

Vectors are one of the single most useful and most used objects in the STL. They are easy to use, and remove the burden of memory management from the user. It is possible to partially control memory usage by using functions like reserve, but nothing is provided to free up excess memory. Users have come up with ways to trim a vector by hand, but with the advent of the new C++0x and its move semantics, the classic solution of copy-swaping has become excessively expensive. This article seeks to find a better solution.

C++ Tutorial: 10 New STL Algorithms That Will Make You A More Productive Developer

Unquestionably, the most effective tool for a C++ programmer's productivity is the Standard library's rich collection of algorithms. In 2008, about 20 new algorithms were voted into the C++0x draft standard. These new algorithms let you among the rest copy n elements intuitively, perform set theory operations, and handle partitions conveniently. Find out how to use these algorithms to make your code more efficient and intuitive.

  • Companies undertaking an IT project need to find the right balance between cost and functionality. It's important to start by determining whether to build a solution from scratch, buy an out-of-the-box solution, or a combination of both. In reality, most projects will require some system tailoring to meet business requirements. Decision-makers must understand how much software development is enough and craft a detailed implementation plan to ensure the project's success. This white paper examines the different …

  • Today's agile organizations pose operations teams with a tremendous challenge: to deploy new releases to production immediately after development and testing is completed. To ensure that applications are deployed successfully, an automatic and transparent process is required. We refer to this process as Zero Touch Deployment™. This white paper reviews two approaches to Zero Touch Deployment--a script-based solution and a release automation platform. The article discusses how each can solve the key …
