Linq-To-XML Style of Node Creation for C++

This article discusses the new C++ Elmax XML Library feature to implement Linq-To-XML node creation to write XML files. Linq-To-XML node creation is the natural way to create nodes with code that is structurally identical to resultant XML.

Improve Microsoft Visual C++ Application Security and Robustness with SafeInt

In this age of cloud computing, massive parallel systems and complex security threats like identity theft and decentralized botnets, devoting resources to combat the seemingly age-old issue of integer overflow appears distinctly passC). Despite the fact that integer overflow is such a well know problem, particularly within C and C++ programming, the problem remains a real issue from both a defect and security standpoint, that's why the introduction of the SafeInt template class in Visual C++ 2010 to address overflows is a great addition.

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.

Simplify Visual C++ Application Deployment with Manifest Files

Application manifest files provide a declarative means for an application to detail its dependencies and runtime requirements. Each version of Windows and Visual C++ adds further options that can be specified in the application manifest file, and it is important for correct application deployment and execution that the Visual C++ developer keeps up to date with these advances.

The Smart Pointer That Makes Your C++ Applications Safer - std::unique_ptr

Using shared_ptr instead of raw pointers helps you avoid the common pitfalls associated with raw pointers but in some cases, its performance isn't satisfactory. Unique_ptr is a new C++0x smart pointer that is compact, fast and fully compatible with the standard library. Find out how to use unique_ptr to make your code safer without sacrificing performance.
