In today’s article, I’ll show you battle-tested features from the well-known Boost libraries that were adapted into C++17.
With the growing number of elements in the Standard Library, supported by experience from Boost you can write even more fluent C++ code.
Read on and learn about the cool things in C++.
The new C++ standard brings many useful additions to the Standard Library. So far we’ve discussed bigger features like the filesystem or parallel algorithms. Today, I want to focus on smaller, but also handy things.
For example, there are utils for handling type safe unions, replacement of void*, string searchers and much more.
Although C++ is an old programming language, its Standard Library misses a few basic things. Features that Java or .NET had for years were/are not available in STL. With C++17 there’s a nice improvement: for example, we now have the standard filesystem!
Traversing a path, even recursively is so simple now!
