The Truth about "Raw Pointers Removed from C++"

Contents[Show]

Five bloggers have teamed up around the world to deliver an April Fool's joke to readers about eliminating pointers. The response to the five articles was huge and ranged from "it took so long" to "that can not be true".  Here again the truths, half-truths and untruths: No New New: Raw Pointers Removed from C++.  You can even read this post in German or in Russian

First of all, who are the five bloggers?

     Arne Mertz (Simplify C ++)
     Simon Brand (Tartan Llama)
     Jonathan Boccara (Fluent C ++)
     Bartolomiej Filipek (Bartek's coding blog)
     Rainer Grimm (Modern C ++)

Once more very clearly: pointers will not be deprecated in C ++ 20 and will not be removed in C ++ 23.

With C++11, C++14, and C++17 we got a lot of new C++ libraries. In addition, the existing ones are greatly improved. The key idea of my book is to give you the necessary information to the current C++ libraries in about 200 pages.  

C++11 is the first C++ standard that deals with concurrency. The story goes on with C++17 and will continue with C++20.

I'll give you a detailed insight in the current and the upcoming concurrency in C++. This insight includes the theory and a lot of practice with more the 100 source files.

 

Get my books "The C++ Standard Library" (including C++17) and "Concurrency with Modern C++" in a bundle.

In sum, you get more than 550 pages full of modern C++ and more than 100 source files presenting concurrency in practice.
