Constructors in C++

Posted on September 10th, 2008 19 Comments

A constructor is a special method that is created when the object is created or defined. This particular method holds the same name as that of the object and it initializes the instance of the object whenever that object is created. The constructor also usually holds the initializations of the different declared member variables of its object. Unlike some of...

Exception Handling

Posted on September 10th, 2008 0 Comments

Exceptions are the way of flagging unexpected conditions or errors that have occured in C++ program. Exception Mechanism so far we have handled error conditions by using the if statement to test some expressions and then executing specific code to deal with the error. C++ Language provides a good mechanism to tacke these conditions. The exception mechanism uses...

Destructors in C++

Posted on September 10th, 2008 2 Comments

As opposed to a constructor, a destructor is called when a program has finished using an instance of an object. A destructor does the cleaning behind the scenes. Like the default constructor, the compiler always create a default destructor if you don’t create one. Like the default constructor, a destructor also has the same name as its object. This time,...

Operators Overloading

Posted on September 10th, 2008 19 Comments

What is Operator Overloading Operator Overloading enables us to make the standard operators, like +, -, * etc, to work with the objects of our own data types. So what we do is, write a function which redefines a particular operator so that it performs a specific operation when it is used with the object of a class. Operator overloading does not allow to make...

The Standard C++ Library

Posted on September 10th, 2008 1 Comment

The 1998 C++ standard consists of two parts: the core language and the C++ standard library; the latter includes most of the Standard Template Library and a slightly modified version of the C standard library. Many C++ libraries exist which are not part of the standard, such as the Boost library. Also, non-standard libraries written in C can generally be used...

Strings in C++

Posted on September 10th, 2008 3 Comments

String in C/C++ is not more than a array of characters. String encapsulates the functionality of traversing, replacing, copying of one character array to another. One of the biggest time-wasters in C is using character arrays for string processing: keeping track of the difference between static quoted strings and arrays created on the stack and the heap, and...

Templates in depth

Posted on September 10th, 2008 5 Comments

Templates are of great utility to programmers in C++, especially when combined with multiple inheritance and operator overloading. The C++ Standard Template Library (STL) provides many useful functions within a framework of connected templates. As the templates in C++ are very expressive they may be used for things other than generic programming. One such use...
