This document is a result of a committee formed at Indian Hill to establish a common set of coding standards and recommendations for the Indian Hill community. The scope of this work is the coding style, not the functional organization of programs. The standards in this document are not specific to ESS programming only.
This source code is from Thinking in C++, 2nd Edition, Volume 2, by Bruce Eckel & Chuck Allison. You can use Borland, G++ (For version 3 and above only), Microsoft (For C++ with .NET only) to compile and build this source code. Writing perfect software may be a daunting task for developers, but a few defensive techniques which are routinely applied can go a long way toward narrowing the gap between code and ideal. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability of the application is required, safety if utmost concern, or security is needed for application to work.
