C and C++
C++ is a C-based programming language that provides a direct mapping of hardware features and a low-level memory manipulation, and is also a general purpose programming language that could be used in various contexts. C++ inherits from C and also introduces object-oriented programming features with the use of classes that provide the common OOP features of abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. C++ is ranked as the third most commonly used programming language by TIOBE Index of programming languages. C++ could be used in various IDEs, such as Visual Studio, Eclipse, and NetBeans. In this tutorial, we shall get started with using C++ in Eclipse IDE. This tutorial has the following sections.
When instantiating a function template for a given type, the compiler stencils out a copy of the templated function and replaces the template type parameters with the actual types used in the variable declaration. This means a particular function will have the same implementation details for each instanced type (just using different types). While most of the time, this is exactly what you want, occasionally there are cases where it is useful to implement a templated function slightly different for a specific data type.
The gcc compiler offers a seemingly never-ending list of command line options. Of course, no body uses or has expertise on all of them, but there are a select bunch that every gcc user should - if not must - know. While some of them are commonly used, others are a bit uncommon but no less useful. In this article series, we are focusing on some of those uncommon but useful gcc command line options, and have already covered a couple of them in the part 1.
In this lesson, we’ll continue by examining another type of cast: dynamic_cast. When dealing with polymorphism, you’ll often encounter cases where you have a pointer to a base class, but you want to access some information that exists only in a derived class.
Making a programming language actually useful is not simply about designing it well but it is also about providing supporting tools around the language: compilers, obviously, but also editors, build systems, etc. There are few languages that give you tools to play under the hood. I am thinking about the Language Server Protocol for example.
Containers classes are those that provide the means to hold elements and facilitates and have some sort of management and manipulation over it. When we talk about containers, the first thing that comes to mind is of Standard Template Library (STL). STL supplies quite a few sophisticated container implementations. Started as a separate library, STL heavily influenced the derivatives of container classes of the C++ standardized library in its present from. Though the standard library is a collection of many other functionalities apart from providing container classes, here we'll focus on container classes only.
This article describes how to add a measure to a Tabular model already deployed on Analysis Services by using C# or PowerShell. This can be useful to deploy user-defined metrics without deploying the entire database. I worked in several Analysis Services projects where certain metrics were developed outside of the regular database modeling development process. There are many examples for that:
You might need to get the information that contains the commandline which is used to execute the current application in C#. How to get the CommandLine of the Current Application in C# ? You can use the CommandLine property of the System.Environment class that provides the necessary information including the application name.
You can use the MachineName property defined in the System.Environment class in order to get the Machine Name from your .NET Application. How to get the Machine Name from a .NET Application using C# ? Here’s a code sample demonstrating how to do it.
Here’s the code that demonstrates how one can get the total number of elements contained in the ArrayList using C# using the Count property of the ArrayList.
You can use the AddRange method of the ArrayList object to add the range of elements (string array) to ArrayList in C#. How to Add range of elements to ArrayList in C# ? Here’s the code that demonstrates how to do it.
There are times when you would use the read-only wrapper in order to prevent modifying the ArrayList. We use the ArrayList.ReadOnly method to create such collection. When doing so , you might want to check if the ArrayList is Read-only or not.
You can use the Length property of the array to return the number of elements in it. Note that once the array is created , you cannot change its length. How to get the Number of Elements in an Array in C# ? Here’s a code snippet demonstrating the usage of the Length property of the array to get the number of elements.
In one of the previous articles , we demonstrated the usage of the Length property of the array in C# to get the number of elements in it. In this post , lets have a look at getting the number of elements in the multi-dimentional array in C#. How to get the Number of Elements in an MultiDimensional Array in C# ? If you wanted to find out the total number of elements in the multi-dimensional array , you can use the GetLength method of the array and specify the dimension as parameter as shown in the code snippet.
In C# , the Rank property of the array is is used to get the rank of the array. In simple terms , rank refers to the number of dimensions of the array. How to use array Rank in C# ? You can get the number of dimensions of the array using the Rank property of the array. For instance , the Rank property of the 1-D array results in the value 1 whereas the 2-D array results in the rank value of 2.
In programming language, stack is a data structure that has few interesting properties. Its elements are added as you get them, and you empty the stack from last element that you have added into it. Stack is also known as LIFO, which stands for “Last In First Out”.
When building a .NET application to read barcodes on Windows via camera, you need two types of SDKs – one for webcam, and the other for barcodes. In this post, I want to share how to use .Net webcam and barcode SDKs to create a simple WinForm barcode reader application in C#.
As Windows 10 evolves, we are continuing to build in support for musician-focused technologies. Let’s take a look at MIDI. Windows has had built-in MIDI support going back to the 16-bit days. Since then, most MIDI interfaces have moved to USB and our in-box support has kept pace, with a class driver and APIs that support those new interfaces.
C++ generics provide a powerful way to create an extensible design with the help of templates. The primary motivation of any generic model of programming is that it enables the programmer to develop components that provide easy and seamless transition from the design to the application code. It also better expresses design intention and highly supports the reuse of design structure with minimal recoding. A sense of the generic pattern also can be achieved through other means, such as polymorphism and virtual classes, void objects, and so forth, which simulate a flavor of generics by providing multiple service with a single interface, but they are quite different from templates.
For those of you who have been using C# for some time now, you've no doubt come across the use of the Async and Await keywords for asynchronous programming and probably made extensive use of them yourselves. If you're new to the language, asynchronous programming in the language—today—finds these keywords at its core. They make writing asynchronous methods very easy; those methods look very similar to their synchronous counterparts, and are almost as easy to read.
