Publisher Comments:

Organized in a practical problem-and-solution format, More Exceptional C++ picks up where the widely acclaimed Exceptional C++ leaves off, providing successful strategies for solving real-world problems in C++. Drawing from years of in-the-trenches experience, Herb Sutter provides tested techniques and practical solutions for programmers designing modern software systems with C++, from small projects to enterprise applications.

Built around forty programming puzzles, More Exceptional C++ helps you understand the rules and issues critical to successful software design and development in C++. New themes included in this sequel place a strong emphasis on generic programming, memory management, and using the C++ standard library, including coverage of important techniques like traits and predicates. Also included are guidelines and considerations to remember when using standard containers and algorithms--topics rarely covered in-depth in other sources.Readers will find solutions to such important questions as:

  • What pitfalls might you encounter when using std::map and std::set, and how can you safely avoid them?
  • What kinds of predicates are safe to use with the STL, what kinds aren't, and why?
  • What techniques are available for writing powerful generic template code that can change its own behavior based on the capabilities of the types it's given to work with?
  • When and how should you optimize your code? Why can (and do) fancy optimizations get us into trouble? And how can some of these answers change if you're writing multithread-safe code?
  • Does exception safety affect class design, or can it be retrofitted in as an afterthought?
  • How can you avoid the Siamese Twin problem when combining inheritance-based libraries from different vendors?
  • How can you safely use auto_ptr, and then use common design patterns to adapt it to avoid common pitfalls? Can you use auto_ptr as a class member? What must you know before you elect to use it that way?
  • Plus one of the most frequently recurring questions about modern C++: When and how should you use namespaces, anyway?

A must-have for the serious programmer, More Exceptional C++ provides a thorough and pragmatic understanding of the language while showing you how to write exceptional code in C++.

Book News Annotation:

Written in a question and answer format, this book offers tips for more effectively writing production C++ software. The author draws from the entire palette of the C++ language and library features to show how apparently unrelated items can be used together to synthesize novel solutions to common problems. The 40 items address generic programming, the C++ standard library, exceptions, inheritance, optimization, and namespaces. Some of the material originally appeared as magazine and internet columns.

Synopsis:

This text contains coverage of optimization in both single and multi threaded environments. It emphasizes generic programming and using the C++ Standard Library.
