Imagine you have an array of booleans (or an array of ‘conditions’), and you want to pack it - so you use only one bit per boolean. How to do it? Let’s do some experiments!

As you’ve might already notice I’ve made a little joke on Saturday, which was the April Fools’ Day. I got the courage to announce C++18 next year! :)
While it was a bit funny, I didn’t expect much traffic (as it was Saturday). Still, my stats shows that a lot of people clicked and viewed the post. Thanks!
Today I’d like to continue the topic: why not and have C++18?

You want to transform one file into another, input into output. What API will you choose on Windows? WinApi? C++ Streams or good old stdio?
Last year in September I looked at four ways of processing a file on Windows. Also, I did some performance tests.
The whole project description was recently published in Visual Studio Magazine.

Have you seen my recent blog post with the list of C++17 features? Probably this is not the best measurement, but it got only ~30% of the average read (while other articles might get like 70, or even 90%). I am not complaining, the list is crazy and contains probably too many details of the new standard.
Another stat: C++ standard page count: from 879 pages for C++98/03 to 1586 for C++17 (draft)!
Do you need to learn all of that stuff to write good code?
How to stay sane in the C++ world today?
