Why do we use volatile keyword

0 votes
I've never used it, but I'm curious why people do.

What precisely does it do?

When I searched the forum, I only saw C# or Java discussions.

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

C++ auto keyword. Why is it magic?

Auto was a keyword that C++ "inherited" from C and had been around for a long time but was almost never used because there were only two possibilities: it wasn't allowed or it was assumed by default. C++11 introduced the usage of auto to denote an inferred type. Similarly to how template type deduction works for function templates, auto x = initializer deduces the type of x from the type of initializer.  Consider the following function template: template<class T> int whatever(T t) { ...READ MORE
