Book Review: Beyond the C++ Standard Library

Filed under
Reviews

This is not an easy book. It is not a volume for beginners. But if you are willing to work your way through the code, this will make you a far better C++ programmer. It will also give you a better understanding of the ways you can manage objects.

Starting out from smart_ptr, Karlsson takes us through the maze of Conversion, Utility, Operators, and Regex (Libraries 1-5). As readers of my work know, I am a believer in the utility of regular expressions. Where C++/Boost is concerned, Karlsson serves as an excellent Virgil.

Part II of Beyond the C++ Library is about Containers (Libraries 6-8) and Part II concerns Function Objects and Higher-Order Programming (Libraries 9-12). The book ends with an excellent bibliography and an index.

Full Story.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
