With constructors under our belts, we can now talk about initialization of structs and other types. This is a far more complex topic than in C#. Read on to learn a lot of nitty-gritty details!
So far with structs we’ve covered data members, member functions, and overloaded operators. Now let’s talk about the main parts of their lifecycle: constructors and destructors. Destructors in particular are very different from C# and represent a signature feature of C++ that has wide-ranging effects on how we write and design code for the language. Read on to learn all about them!
Let’s continue the series with another nuts-and-bolts topic: control flow. The Venn diagram is largely overlap here, but both C# and C++ have their own unique features and some of the features in common have important differences between the two languages. Read on for the nitty-gritty!
Today’s article continues the series by introducing C++’s build model, which is very different from C#. We’ll go into preprocessing, compiling, linking, header files, the one definition rule, and many other aspects of how our source code gets built into an executable.
The series continues today with functions. These are obviously core to any programming language, but it’s not obvious how many ways they differ from functions in C#. From compile-time execution to automatic return value types, there are a lot of differences to cover today.
