Suggestions of excellent examples of real C C code

0 votes

I'd like to study some good C/C++ code. The code should:

  1. be good in style and structure, presenting best practices
  2. be a real-life program (not an example or toy)
  3. not too big so it doesn't take ages to analyze it
  4. Windows and/or Unix

I know there are 1000s of open-source projects out there. But I'd like to hear your suggestions.

I'd like to particularly bring up memcached.  It's an excellent illustration of a relatively short, legible code with a distinct purpose.

The Apache web server is the second thing I would suggest. You'll learn a lot from this incredibly well-run open-source project about the language, as well as about general design principles and networking/threading.

I hope this helps you.

Cases of static and dynamic binding in C++

When an object's static type is used to associate it with a member function, this is known as static binding (understand the type of its class). When a pointer or reference is associated with a member function based on the dynamic type of the object, this is known as dynamic binding (understand the instance of the variable at runtime). Before continuing, keep in mind that dynamic binding only works with pointers, references, and virtual functions for the base class. Because everything needed to call the function is known at compile time, the first call is a static binding (also known as early binding). Derived1 d1(1, 10); d1.display_data(); You already know that the d1 instance is a Derived1 automatic variable, and that it will call the Derived1::display data method (). The first condition is incorrect: d1 is neither a pointer nor a reference. The second condition isn't acceptable:  There is no virtual Derived1::display data. The second call is for ...READ MORE
