Why are exceptions so rarely used in C

0 votes
I've been writing in C++ on and off for roughly 5 years; why have I never seen exceptions used for anything other than examples?

Why is Turbo C++ showing this error in DOSBox on my Mac?

Your installation must be defective!  I have a Mac, and I'm typing this on it while using TurboC++.  Consider uninstalling and then reinstalling the programme. Download the package in the same way as you would a.dmg programme from the internet.  (For example, drag and drop the programme into the Applications folder)  Ascertain that your Applications folder is global to your system.  This is what I mean: When in Finder, select the "GO" option from the top menu bar. From the drop down option, choose "Computer." In the newly opened window, click on your hard disc. There is a "Applications" folder there.  That's where you should put TurboC++. Go to Launchpad, and start Turbo C++. ...READ MORE

When and why do I need to use cin.ignore() in C++?

In C++, I developed a simple application that requested the user to enter a number and then a string.  Surprisingly, when I ran the application, it never paused to ask for the string.  It simply ignored it.  After conducting some research on StackOverflow, I discovered that I needed to include the following line: cin.ignore(256, '\n'); before the line with the string input  That addressed the problem and allowed the software to run.  My issue is why C++ need the cin.ignore() line, and how can I forecast when I will need to use it. Here's the software I created: #include <iostream> #include <string> using namespace std; int main() { ...READ MORE

How member functions are implemented in C++?

I read somewhere that member functions in C++ are similar to regular functions but with an additional implicit this parameter. As a result, I assumed that this software would be unable to discriminate between two functions.  However, the software executed successfully.  So, was the above statement incorrect? #include <iostream> class MyCls { ...READ MORE
