Designing and Coding Reusable C++ Summary


Designing and Coding Reusable C++ by Martin D. Carroll

One of the important benefits of programming in C++ is its reuse capabilities. Designing and Implementing Reusable C++ illustrates and enumerates all of the tradeoffs involved in writing reusable code. The authors discuss the topics related to the software development of code reusability in the design of interfaces, the efficiency of implementations, portability, and compatibility. The advantages and disadvantages of the alternatives are discussed in depth so that programmers can make informed decisions. Novice and experienced programmers alike will benefit from the ideas presented by the authors to produce reusable C++ code. 020151284XB04062001
