Uitgebreide vaknaam Advanced programming in C++
Leerdoelen After successfully completing this part of the C++ course you are able to:
1) design and use function templates as well as class templates;
2) explain the template parameter deduction process;
3) explain why Substitution Failure Is Not An Error (SFINAE); and to explain how this principle affects template selections;
4) define (partial) specializations for class templates; and to explain why function templates do not support partial specializations;
5) design and implement variadic templates;
6) use tuples to return structured types from functions, and use them to define differently typed variables in the initialization sections of for-, if-, and switch statements;
7) define statically polymorphic classes, preventing the software from having to use dynamic or late binding;
8) use template meta programming to convert values to types, to define the organization of classes based on its template parameters, and to use compile-time selection and iteration without creatng any run-time executed code;
9) use template concepts to specify the requirements of template type arguments;
10) use precompiled headers and/or modules to reduce compilation times and to avoid the use of include guards in header files;
11) use transactional memory to avoid having to protect statements executed in multiple threads by mutexes;
12) use code generators instead of designing lexical scanners and syntax parsers ‘by hand’.
Omschrijving Continuing after Programming in C++ participants are at the level where they are familiar with all standard and predefined elements of the C++ programming language and are able to design understandable and maintainable large-scale C++ programs. Advanced Programming in C++ continues from there, and strongly focuses on compiler performed code generation.
