Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 6th and 7th, 2012session
Generic Programming in C++: A real-world example
About This Session
In this session, I will take a request from the boost mailing list:
| Why doesn’t boost have hex/unhex functions, I think they would be useful.
And walk through the design and implementation of these algorithms for the Boost.Algorithm library. Although the functions are simple, there are a surprising number of interesting design decisions that were made along the way – and I will explore them in this talk.
1) Generic programming design
2) Dealing with iterators (including the problems with output iterators)
3) Template metaprogramming (including enable_if)
5) Fit and polish of code.
