This is a series of things that I found out when learning C++. The approach is going to non-standard and likely to annoy any normal C++ professional. I am interested in languages in general and so I will be doing all my early code without and STL at all. I want to learn what features the language offers before starting to use the standard libraries. To this end I try to do do simple version of the features that are already available. That way I can see how these features are implemented in the standard libraries. To me that feels like a important advantage in learning the language. I did try to read the code for the libraries but it has a lot of very nuanced code that I will only get to understand much later on. The code is still interesting to step through however as it does offer clues as to how to unpick various implementations.Continue reading “Learning C++”
