C++ Links #18

Welcome to new C++ Links - most important and useful articles, podcasts and videos that happen between 2nd and 8th of February 2019.

In this week you will find a link to interesting CMake features, a detailed description of the std::rotate algorithm and many more!

  1. Even if you are using CMake daily, there is still lots of tweaks that you probably don’t know. Isabella Muerte described a few exciting features (starting with emoji as a variable name, up to terrifying file(GENERATE):

  2. Jason Turner shows how to use distributed build with icecream (a fork of distcc)

  3. Post from Rainer Grimm - this week he describes compile-time programming using constexpr:
    modernescpp.com/index.php/c-core-guidelines-programming-at-compile-time-with-constexpr

  4. Jonathan Boccara continues series on Variadic Number of Arguments of the Same Type. Today he is showing how we can use std::initializer_list, comma operator (scary!) and few more:
    fluentcpp.com/2019/02/05/how-to-define-a-variadic-number-of-arguments-of-the-same-type-part-3/

  5. Guest post on fluentcpp. John Kalb, known from CppChat, discourage to use…. range-based for loop and suggest std::for_each:

  6. Nice blog post describing the std::rotate algorithm. Great explanation with many drawings:
    awfulcode.io/2019/02/07/inside-the-stl-the-implementation-of-rotate/

  7. Arthur O’Dwyer presents “idiom of the day”: arrow_proxy, mind-blowing tiny piece of code which he used to solve a really interesting issue:

The links are brought to you by Wojciech Razik.
Wojtek is a Senior C++ developer at Thaumatec, currently writing software for a robot. He enjoys reading C++ Standard before bed, and he loves to hate JS from dawn to dusk.
If you know Polish, take a look at cpp-polska.pl where Wojtek is one of the co-authors.
