  • Udacity Class - This isn't really how it's done is it?
    I'm a bit skeptical of the class as it is due to the fact that they're recommending as the go to reference, the class is supposed to be for C++ 17, so it's not like the information should be that out of date right? Am I crazy here? - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Why are all of my friends telling me not to use is just fine. It's not complete, or up-to-date, but it's not malicious or anything. I look at it sometimes when I need a very surface level explanation of a concept as opposed to cppreference's highly detailed, comprehensive style. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Why Cin automatically ignore the enter key in class
    I am looking into The >> operator has 4 effective parameters in standard istream objects: ws, boolalpha/noboolalpha, skipws/noskipws, and dec/hex/oct. The skipws parameter is for skip whitespaces, and in standard streams, skipws is set on initialization. Also, in C locale, 0x20 (space), 0x09 (tab), 0x0a (new line), 0x0b (vertical tab), 0x0c (feed), and 0x0d (carriage return) are considered as... - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • Best way to start in robotics?
    But there are tons, for written ones tutorialpoint or are good resources. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • I am stuck in tutorial hell
    I would start with a direction of where to apply C++. Updating legacy code, working on embedded systems, creating financial application and creating high performant games are a few common option. Also sites like cppreference and Compiler Explorer/Godbolt are your friends in learning. might help with legacy support as it stops with C++11. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • are there any online tutorials for people who know c++ but want to learn c?
    Sorry if this is a noob question, but ive been wanting to learn some lower level languages like assembly and c, but all the tutorials I find on c assume im a complete beginner and they're hard to sit through. Are there any tutorials online that are aimed at people with previous c++ knowlage? Or even a website like for c? Im gonna read the book, the c programming language too, but id also like some... - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Sites like GeeksForGeeks really hurt C++ learning
    I like the layout of better though. The way it has each C++ version in a separate tab is much more readable than the way cppreference does it. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago

    Cool, I didn't know these existed, but now that I know I'm going to investigate this. I wish could be banished from existence. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • newbie here. SO i am trying to iterate through a string and replace vowels with "v" but I keep failing. Any help would be appreciated. is often outdated and sometimes just wrong. I would not recommend it. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Question about the (un)initialization of local variables
    I am going through the tutorial and got to initializing variables - this example is given:. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Beginner in Computer Science
    After that, I recommend learning higher level languages like C++ and begin learning concepts of abstract data types, data structures, and algorithms once you're used to the language. I first learned C++ from codecademy before university but I don't really recommend codecademy and would recommend learning from instead. University is where I started to learn data structures and all that stuff related... - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Picking a New Language
    C++ (I'm sure they don't need care, but you could really tell the age of this language through the site design) The only reason I'm considering this is because of how much video games I play. Well actually it's not like an unhealthy amount, but it definitely holds a share of my time. It's also such an old language that learning it could probably benefit my overall understanding of languages in general? I'm not... - Source: / 6 months ago
  • Do not take FIT1048.
    We have access to, that's it lmfao. Oh, and our IDE, naturally. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • Can i have some book recommendations as a beginner in computer engineering?
    On the programming side, I suggest looking into C/C++ programming. I think the best resource for this is through the Arduino platform, which offers a full solution to hardware and software. This essentially is microcontroller programming, which forms a major basis to embedded systems development. Just buying a simple kit online shouldn't end up breaking the bank on it. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Time complexity of std:vector.erase() if erasing multiple elements from the end
    In general, is not a great source for cpp related information. It is outdated and I've run into mistakes in the past. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Sirius question.
    There are lot of sites - for studying and reference. What do you need site for? - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Am I really dumb or I just lack time?
    As for syntax errors, googling is your friend. I ALWAYS have or MSDN C# docs open on several tabs when I'm working. I NEVER memorize syntax. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Quest 7 to_string()
    I don't think it's commutative. I looked up the operator+ for string on and for adding two strings, the operator takes a lhs string and rhs string. So if string s = "hello" and string r = "world", s+r = "helloworld" but r+s = "worldhello". This is also true if one or both of the arguments is a method call returning a string. The only thing that matters here is the order (what's on the rhs and lhs). - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • C/C++ character types
    This is confusing to me: how can I return a non-const result from a const haystack? Wouldn't this require me to copy the string? Furthermore, the overloads defined on look like. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
