The first statement puts the literal string “mycplus” in read-only memory and copies the string to newly allocated memory on the stack. The second statement is known as static string allocation and definition. This statement places the string “mycplus” in the read-only parts of the memory and making p_name a pointer to that string.
In the C Programming Language, the #ifndef directive checks if the given token has been #defined earlier in the C code. If the token has not been defined earlier then it includes the code between #ifndef and #else. If no #else is present then code between ##ifndef and #endif is included.
A series of game engines known as id Tech is a series designed and developed by id Software. The company behind id Tech is id Software that is part of the ZeniMax Media Inc. First few engines of the series i.e. 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been released as free software under the GNU General Public License.
IW Engine is a next-generation game engine employed in the highly successful series of Call of Duty. The engine is written in C, C++ and Python language. It targets the platforms of Microsoft Windows, OSX, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U. It was developed by Video Game Companies Infinity Ward Inc. and Treyarch. The engine was originally based on id Tech 3 game engine. The first version IW 2.0 was developed in 2005.
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.
