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.

An Interview with C++ Creator Bjarne Stroustrup

Bjarne Stroustrup talks about the imminent C++0x standard and the forthcoming features it brings, the difficulties of standardizing programming languages in general, the calculated risks that the standards committee can afford to take with new features, and even his own New Year's resolutions.

C++ Programming: Understanding Standard C++ Library Additions in Visual C++ 2010

For every true C++ developer, the Standard C++ Library is the first choice for utility classes, collections and algorithms to streamline the development effort. Continuing on from the investment in core C++ programming improvements in Visual C++ 2008, Visual C++ 2010 introduces improvements in the Standard C++ Library related to C++ 0x, and this article focuses on advancements in Standard C++ collections and algorithms.
