Overview of this book

C++ has come a long way to be one of the most widely used general-purpose languages that is fast, efficient, and high-performance at its core. The updated second edition of Modern C++ Programming Cookbook addresses the latest features of C++20, such as modules, concepts, coroutines, and the many additions to the standard library, including ranges and text formatting. The book is organized in the form of practical recipes covering a wide range of problems faced by modern developers. The book also delves into the details of all the core concepts in modern C++ programming, such as functions and classes, iterators and algorithms, streams and the file system, threading and concurrency, smart pointers and move semantics, and many others. It goes into the performance aspects of programming in depth, teaching developers how to write fast and lean code with the help of best practices. Furthermore, the book explores useful patterns and delves into the implementation of many idioms, including pimpl, named parameter, and attorney-client, teaching techniques such as avoiding repetition with the factory pattern. There is also a chapter dedicated to unit testing, where you are introduced to three of the most widely used libraries for C++: Boost.Test, Google Test, and Catch2. By the end of the book, you will be able to effectively leverage the features and techniques of C++11/14/17/20 programming to enhance the performance, scalability, and efficiency of your applications.

Exploring Testing Frameworks

Testing the code is an important part of software development. Although there is no support for testing in the C++ standard, there is a large variety of frameworks for unit testing C++ code. The purpose of this chapter is to get you started with several modern and widely used testing frameworks that enable you to write portable testing code. The frameworks that will be covered in this chapter are Boost.Test, Google Test, and Catch2.

This chapter includes the following recipes:

  • Getting started with Boost.Test
  • Writing and invoking tests with Boost.Test
  • Asserting with Boost.Test
  • Using test fixtures with Boost.Test
  • Controlling output with Boost.Test
  • Getting started with Google Test
