For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.
Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!
I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Lots of things to do with and within a C++ class
I've added a build up example - written during the current C to C++ conversion bootcamp - to our Further C++ OO Features
shows a simple class and test harness.
adds a comparison of heap or stack objects, overloading of methods, static methods, more character handling, and the use of "this".
adds destructors, delete, vectors, comparators, and factory methods.
These examples do NOT split the application and its class into separate files, nor have we used inheritance, extension, etc - these other vital topics are in other examples that you'll find in other nearby blog entries. The purpose of this particular post is to show you some of the very wide range of things that you'll need to do within a single class. (written 2010-11-16, updated 2010-11-18)
