It is a ebook for these folks who believed that we didn’t have to study Perl, and now we all know it truly is extra ubiquitous than ever. Perl is very versatile and robust, and it isn’t scared of internet 2. zero or the cloud. initially touted because the duct tape of the net, Perl has due to the fact advanced right into a multipurpose, multiplatform language current completely in every single place: heavy-duty net functions, the cloud, platforms management, usual language processing, and fiscal engineering.

Example text

The suffix _t, which in C originally means typedef, is also widely used for (private) typedefs standing for template instances: template class SomeContainer { // informally means: // within this class, a pair always denotes a pair of scalars private: typedef std::pair pair_t; }; On the other hand, a public typedef name usually is composed of lowercase regular English words (such as iterator_category). 6. Metafunctions We often meet stateless class templates whose members are only enumerations (as a rule, anonymous), static constants, types (typedefs or nested classes), and static member functions.

B : a; } template struct SomeClass { static const int value = sq(N)/max(N, 1); Finally, consider a special class of macros. A macro directive is a macro whose usage logically takes an entire line of code. 1415926535897932384626433832795029 // the use of MXT_PI does not take the whole line // so it is not a directive. const double x = std::cos(MXT_PI); // directive MXT_NULL_NAMESPACE_END() The definition of a macro directive, in general, should not end with a semicolon, so the user is forced to close the line manually (when appropriate), as if it were a standard function call.

Macros Macros play a special role in TMP. Some programmers consider them a necessary evil and indeed they are necessary, but it’s not obvious they are also evil. Macros must: • Allow the reader to recognize them • Prevent name collisions As discussed in [5], usually member function names should be actions. Thus empty should be a synonym for make_empty and not for is_empty. However, STL convention is established and universally understood. When in doubt, do as std::vector does. 27 41 Chapter 1 ■ Templates The easiest way to satisfy both requirements is to choose a unique and sufficiently ugly common prefix for all macros and play with lower/uppercase to give extra meaning to the name.
