Another follow-up to my post about rolling your own vector class. In this post I look at placement new initialisation semantics once again, but in the context of 'value type' classes.

This post is essentially a response to feedback to my previous post about using a custom vector class, including some comments by Herb Sutter.

STL vectors offer a great combination of dynamically resizing convenience and low level contiguous buffer accessing performance but std::vector is not the only option and custom implementations can sometimes be a better fit for specific requirements.

STL style vectors are convenient because they hide the details of internal buffer management, and present a simplified interface, but sometimes convenience can be a trap!

STL style vectors are a pretty useful construct. I remember coming to C++ (and the STL) from a background in lower level programming, and finding STL vectors a bit surprising, with the idea of amortized constant time complexity and so o

As a programmer with children, the teaching programming to children side of this is quite interesting to me, specifically, but I find that teaching anything to children can be complicated since they have to be interested, for one thing . r n r nI read a blog post somewhere that ...
