I started programming in C in 1989, and in C++ in 1990. We had compile servers running OS/2 because the DOS box on that otherwise completely useless system had more memory than a regular PC. Over the years, my interest in C/C++ slowly faded a bit: I was doing it everyday in and out at work, so how exciting can it be?
These days (2015), I have a renewed interest in C++ these days as I am rewriting parts of my existing code base with C++11 features. As part of that exercise, I have started a series on understanding the STL. Also, there are quite a few articles tagged C++ on this site:
- Calculating PI to an arbitrary number of digits
- Obfuscated C++
- Using C++ Member Functions with C Function Pointers
- Duck Typing and C++ templates
- Self-registering global C++ objects
- A series on understanding the STL
Many of the tools you find on this website are written in C/C++, including my implementation of the ReiserFS file system for Windows and the original pserv.cpl.
