C++ templates : the complete guide / David Vandevoorde, Nicolai M. Josuttus, Douglas Gregor. cover
Templates are among the most powerful features of C++, but they are too often neglected, misunderstood, and misused. C++ Templates: The Complete Guide provides software architects and engineers with a clear understanding of why, when, and how to use templates to build and maintain cleaner, faster, and smarter software more efficiently. C++ Templates begins with an insightful tutorial on basic concepts and language features. The remainder of the book serves as a comprehensive reference, focusing first on language details, then on a wide range of coding techniques, and finally on advanced applications for templates. Examples used throughout the book illustrate abstract concepts and demonstrate best practices. Readers learn: The exact behaviors of templates -- How to avoid the pitfalls associated with templates -- Idioms and techniques, from the basic to the previously undocumented -- How to reuse source code without threatening performance or safety -- How to increase the efficiency of C++ programs -- How to produce more flexible and maintainable software -- This practical guide shows programmers how to exploit the full power of the template features in C++. -- Provided by publisher.
