Overview of this book

C++ has evolved over the years and the latest release – C++20 – is now available. Since C++11, C++ has been constantly enhancing the language feature set. With the new version, you’ll explore an array of features such as concepts, modules, ranges, and coroutines. This book will be your guide to learning the intricacies of the language, techniques, C++ tools, and the new features introduced in C++20, while also helping you apply these when building modern and resilient software. You’ll start by exploring the latest features of C++, and then move on to advanced techniques such as multithreading, concurrency, debugging, monitoring, and high-performance programming. The book will delve into object-oriented programming principles and the C++ Standard Template Library, and even show you how to create custom templates. After this, you’ll learn about different approaches such as test-driven development (TDD), behavior-driven development (BDD), and domain-driven design (DDD), before taking a look at the coding best practices and design patterns essential for building professional-grade applications. Toward the end of the book, you will gain useful insights into the recent C++ advancements in AI and machine learning. By the end of this C++ programming book, you’ll have gained expertise in real-world application development, including the process of designing complex software.

  1. What are the side effects of macros?
  2. What is a class/function template? What is a template class/function?
  3. What is a template parameter list? What is a template argument list? Once we have a class template, we can instantiate it either explicitly or implicitly. In what kind of scenario is explicit instantiation necessary?
  4. What does polymorphism mean in C++? What is the difference between function overloading and function overriding?
  5. What are type traits? How do we implement a type trait?
  6. In the ch4_5_class_template_implicit_inst_B.cpp file, we said implicit instantiation generates the X<int> class, and then creates the xi object and generates the X<int>::f() function, but not X<int>::g(). How can you verify that X<int>::g() is not generated?
  7. Using template metaprogramming, solve the problem of f(x,n) = x^n, where n is a const and x is a variable...
