Except for the last Meyers, they are already quite old, so you need to adapt them when you read to the new C++ features. And even then, they didn't write than many books, so that would make it around 10. It gets very easy to read the wrong book.sonigen wrote:You missed my point, there are specifically lots of books on how to avoid all the pitfalls of C++, how to avoid stepping on the landmines, written by the C++ gurus like Meyers, Sutter and Alexandrescu.
That's true. That's something I actually like about the language, and make it also its power. You can write in more or less any fashion. In some cases one manner is better than another.sonigen wrote:No other language I've used has so much written in terms of "If you're doing A make sure you avoid B". Or "it has MI which is cool, but really dont use it, its not a good idea".
Haha.sonigen wrote:I've been coding 30 years and have used a bunch of different languages, C++ is not fast to develop in. You can imply that I don't know what I'm doing but then I could imply you've never been out of your C++ bubble.
Everything that was deprecated due to the introduction of lambdas, auto_ptr, register, auto, export, random_shuffle...sonigen wrote:What language features have been depreciated in the last 10 years?
