On my machine sizeof std:: Apparently Visual Studio will ‘fix’ this by delaying the loading of a load of dlls – however this points to an alarming trend. We already have desktop and laptop Jlsuttis with multiple cores today, and mobile devices and even embedded systems are starting to go that way as well.

In this respect, function objects are still a better choice.

For more specialised tasks such as graphics rendering, the chips have been highly parallel for a long time. I believe the increased size of std:: More importantly, I think the performance barrier itself will probably be different in a few years as well. Capturing variables – either by value or by reference josuuttis is absolutely equivalent to passing them to the constructor of a function object and making them accessible to operator as member variables.

Horrible syntax, header files, compile times, many traps for a programmer to walk into and hundreds of weird corner cases. To become successful a new programming language requires not only technical merit but also a critical mass of users.

Even PHP and other messes of languages. C is certainly less complex, but still has josurtis shortcomings compared to modern languages. I’m not advocating that we all learn about instruction pipelining and branch prediction but we certainly need to strike a better balance between expediency and reasonable use of resources.

Check on this demo on ideone.


So in my books this book is a suspect no pun intended. Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. I thought it was usually the caret, but that still leaves this case ambiguous with bitwise XOR. It disqualifies ‘d’ for some very basic josutts very important applications.

There is a useful list of books on Stack Overflow. In my experience, writing toy examples to understand how something works uosuttis solving real problems using it are two very, very different things. That is an extremely difficult theoretical problem and an active research area today, but then a few years ago we might have said josuttos similar about just-in-time compilation, and a few years before that we talked about dropping out of C to write the performance-sensitive parts of our code in assembly language.

In that sense I find it almost regretable that it is not possible to create a normal named function object class with the same syntax as lambdas in the global scope, that provides automatically created constructor and members like lambdas. Stronger typing helps catch idiotic bugs, namespacing helps group things, operator overloading makes coded equations more readable, destructors allow for more relaible resource cleanup, etc You can’t make abstraction both costless and correct.


The point is resources are not infinite and they are not ‘free’. It’s usually solved by changing the dereference operator to a different character.

Submit a new text post. I think he might have been drunk. The new stuff does add a lot of functionality, and that stuff is often damn useful, but sometimes you just want a function pointer. This is where my analogy with programming using an assembler today comes in: I suppose I am being josuttia little pedantic. Never underestimate the inventiveness of nature.

For example, optimizations of functional joshttis styles have come a long way in recent years. However, where it all falls down is in reality. It is more efficient and more effective to write in a compiled language and let the tools written by the experts take care 111 the fine details, because they will generate better assembly in an automated way than most of us would by hand anyway. It’s very difficult to scale ‘c’, it doesn’t easily support coding at a higher level.

That is to say, the straight line optimizations will always have some value, but only if you can make everything efficient enough at the higher level first.
