Advanced C++ Programming Cookbook

By: Dr. Rian Quinn

Overview of this book

If you think you've mastered C++ and know everything it takes to write robust applications, you'll be in for a surprise. With this book, you'll gain comprehensive insights into C++, covering exclusive tips and interesting techniques to enhance your app development process. You'll kick off with the basic principles of library design and development, which will help you understand how to write reusable and maintainable code. You'll then discover the importance of exception safety, and how you can avoid unexpected errors or bugs in your code. The book will take you through the modern elements of C++, such as move semantics, type deductions, and coroutines. As you advance, you'll delve into template programming - the standard tool for most library developers looking to achieve high code reusability. You'll explore the STL and learn how to avoid common pitfalls while implementing templates. Later, you'll learn about the problems of multithreaded programming such as data races, deadlocks, and thread starvation. You'll also learn high-performance programming by using benchmarking tools and libraries. Finally, you'll discover advanced techniques for debugging and testing to ensure code reliability. By the end of this book, you'll have become an expert at C++ programming and will have gained the skills to solve complex development problems with ease.

Adding the relevant parts of the std::vector API

In this recipe, we will complete the custom container that we have been building in the first three recipes of this chapter by adding the remaining APIs that the std::vector already provides. Along the way, we will remove the APIs that do not make sense, or that we cannot support because our custom container must keep the elements in the std::vector in sorted order.

This recipe is important as it will show you how to properly create a wrapper container that can be used to encapsulate an existing container with logic that is needed from the container (for example, thread-safety, or in our case, element order).
