I'm happy to announce that I have five giveaway eBooks for "C++20 STL Cookbook" by Bill Weinman. In return, I have a question about the C++20 format library: What are the major advantages of the C++20 format library over
First, here is what packt says about the book:
Fast, efficient, and flexible, the C++ programming language has come a long way and is used in every area of the industry to solve many problems. The latest version C++20 will see programmers change the way they code as it brings a whole array of features enabling the quick deployment of applications. This book will get you up and running with using the STL in the best way possible.
Beginning with new language features in C++20, this book will help you understand the language's mechanics and library features and offer insights into how they work. Unlike other books, the C++20 STL Cookbook takes an implementation-specific, problem-solution approach that will help you overcome hurdles quickly. You'll learn core STL concepts, such as containers, algorithms, utility classes, lambda expressions, iterators, and more, while working on real-world recipes. This book is a reference guide for using the C++ STL with its latest capabilities and exploring the cutting-edge features in functional programming and lambda expressions.
By the end of the book C++20 book, you'll be able to leverage the latest C++ features and save time and effort while solving tasks elegantly using the STL.
Second, this is what Bill Weinman says about his book:
The C++STL is a lot more than just a set of container classes. It may look complicated and intimidating below the surface, but it’s actually very coherent. The C++20 STL Cookbook takes you on a thorough step-by-step journey through the STL’s containers, iterators, algorithms, and more. Learn how to use lambda expressions, concurrency and parallelism classes, strings, streams, and the new filesystem library, all using modern C++20 techniques.
Finally, this is my opinion
Bill's book is an ideal fit when you already have a basic knowledge of the modern Standard Template Library. Its recipes are based on the C++17/20 standard and provide great value for skilled and also advanced C++ professionals.
How can you win a voucher for the book: This is simple. Bill wants to know what are the major advantages of the C++20 format library over
