Five Ways to Improve Your C++ Programming with C++0x Defaulted and Deleted Functions

C++0x introduces two new function specifiers: =default and =delete. The former instructs the compiler to implicitly define a member function that it wouldn't define otherwise. The latter suppresses the implicit definition of a member function. Find out how to use this mechanism to reduce labor-intensive tasks, improve performance, and make your classes more secure.

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++ Tutorial: Use std::tuple To Simulate Compact Heterogeneous Containers

Std::tuple is a compact, fixed size container that packs a variable number of elements of different types. This property makes tuples useful in simulating multiple return types for a function, assigning and comparing multiple values simultaneously and abstracting complex data structures.

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.
