The Clausewitz engine is developed in C++ and being used by developers to build grand strategy-oriented city builder games. Grand strategy games are historical strategy games that include the entire world map where the player is free to customize and built anything which the game offers. These types of games mostly include elements such as economy, diplomacy, and warfare.
ClanLib is a multi-platform game toolkit written completely in C++. It supports Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux, with limited support for mobile platforms. ClanLib comes with full hardware-accelerated graphics support through OpenGL allowing developers to use the hardware capacity to the maximum in graphics rendering for game objects, and also a software renderer.
C++ will continue to remain popular and in high demand owing to its performance, reliability, and the wide variety of contexts in which it can be used. C++ is still successful in areas where real time performance, micro memory management, large-complex applications and embedded systems are being developed.
The Bork3D Game Engine is an open source, C++ game engine. This had specifically being designed by 3D LLC for mobile device platforms, mainly targeting iPad and iPhone.
Blender is a free and open-source 3D graphics production suite. It is primarily suitable for making interactive real-time content. This amazing game engine is purely written in C/C++ from scratch.
Blend4Web is an open source 3D graphic software framework. The main advantage of the framework is that it works right within the browser without installing any third party plugins. It can render both graphics as well as audio inside the browser window.
In C Programming, ternary operator allows executing different code depending on the value of a condition. The returned value is the result of the expression when the code is executed. The main advantage of using ternary operator is to reduce the number of lines of code and improve the performance of application. In C, the real utility of ternary operator is that it is an expression instead of a statement i.e. you can have it on the right-hand side (RHS) of a statement. So you can write certain code statements more concisely.
The C and C++ language provides a built-in mechanism, the modulus operator (‘%’), that computes the remainder that results from performing integer division.
In order to find middle element of linked list in one pass, you need to maintain two pointers, one increment at each node while other increments after two nodes at a time. By having this arrangement, when first pointer reaches end, second pointer will point to middle element of linked list.
There are hundreds of programming languages used in the professional industry and university/college academics. One needs to be familiar and able to program with at least few programming languages to be successful.
This is the implementation of Kruskal’s Algorithm in C Programming Language. This algorithm is directly based on the generic MST (Minimum Spanning Tree) algorithm. Kruskal’s algorithm is a greedy algorithm in graph theory that finds a minimum spanning tree for a connected weighted graph. It finds a subset of the edges that forms a tree that includes every vertex, where the total weight of all the edges in the tree is minimized.
Originally written in 1979 at Computer Laboratory, Cambridge (England), it was reprinted in 1997 in the book “Readings in Information Retrieval”. Initially it was written in BCPL language. Here is the list of implementations in other programming languages including C, Java and Pearl implementations done by author himself.
