It's very easy for a user to crash the program. All the user has to do is pass something like "%s". If the stack happens to contain zeros or something that translates into an address that the...

Personally, I'd rather resurrect an old thread rather than starting a whole new one. At least all the history is in the same place then. But that is just my humble opinion....
(Of course it...

Wow, a unique class for every goto? That sounds much more maintainable than just using a goto! Then there's the argument about performance (which others have brought up).
But you obviously...

Consider what happens if another function in try block also happens to throw an integer. That throw will trigger your goto replacement instead of up to the next matching catch block higher up the...

Glad I could help. That other thread is interesting. I didn't know this type of attribute existed:
That may make life easier the next...

I've had this very same problem. The problem is that by default, the calling convention for C++/CLI projects is __cdecl. However, the callback functions need to be declared __stdcall. Here is an...

Here's an interesting thread that may offer some insight:
In that thread, Boost Multi-Index and Boost RTL (Relational Template Library --...

First, I'm not sure that a std::list is the right container for you. I don't know the details of your implementation, but I would consider either std::vector which will allow for faster iteration, a...

I saw your message in comp.lang.c++. I responded there with a detailed opinion on both Boost threads, ZThreads, and pthreads.
But I'll restate briefly that I don't really think either Boost...

If you wanted to minimize the surface area of the manhole, then you'd want to choose a shape that represents the profile of people as viewed from above (or below) and choose the minimum size so that...

:blush: That was easy! Thanks.
I deal with C++ (ISO, not managed or C++/CLI) 98% of the time and have to dabble with VB.NET every once in a while.

Also note that g++ is not 100% ISO compliant.
As for 100% compliant compilers, I only know of Comeau (which generates C code and requires a C compiler back-end). Intel C++ 9.1 claims 100%...

Yes, visual studio 2005 (Professional) reports errors:
c:\test\codegurutest\codegurutest\codegurutest.cpp(17) : error C2065: 't_Heap' : undeclared identifier...

In VB6, it was easy to pass a array of a certain type (ok, technically it was a array of variants) into a function as follows:
x = Foo(Array(2,3,5,7)) 'Array of integers
I know that in...

As Paul said, std::set is about as fast as it can be. Profile first as Mr. Viggy said. Determine what the real bottleneck is. Is it:
* Memory allocations
* Element insertion and removal

You've missed my point. I don't like the idea of undefined behavior. That allows the compiler vendors to allow demons flying out of my nose. I'm contacting Bjarne, Herb, and P.J. and team to...

Ooopss.... double post. Sorry.

First of all, please use CODE tags:
Secondly, the call to stripWhiteSpace isn't entirely helpful as it removes white space from the beginning of the string. Unnecessary white space at the...

All our exceptions do derive from std::exception. :thumb: :D The problem was that sometimes we needed to add more visibility. For example:
catch (CppLibException& e)...

Why does it have to be my nose demons fly out of? :mad: Why can't it be the developer's nose who wrote the offending code? I'm going to contact Bjarne, Herb, P.J., and the rest of the standards...

Yeah, preprocessor operators. Total brain-fart there. :o

:ehh: From what I've seen you write at CG, I'd have thought you've been programming longer professionally. :D (That's why I made the comment about being surprised.)
Well, perhaps I should...
