C++ Templates: The Complete Guide
Templates are among the most powerful features of C++, but they are too often neglected, misunderstood, and misused. C++ Templates: The Complete Guide provides software architects and engineers with a clear understanding of why, when, and how to use templates to build and maintain cleaner, faster, and smarter software more efficiently.
C++ Templates begins with an insightful tutorial on basic concepts and language features. The remainder of the book serves as a comprehensive reference, focusing first on language details, then on a wide range of coding techniques, and finally on advanced applications for templates. Examples used throughout the book illustrate abstract concepts and demonstrate best practices.
Readers learnThe exact behaviors of templatesHow to avoid the pitfalls associated with templatesIdioms and techniques, from the basic to the previously undocumentedHow to reuse source code without threatening performance or safetyHow to increase the efficiency of C++ programsHow to produce more flexible and maintainable software
This practical guide shows programmers how to exploit the full power of the template features in C++.
