Hello C++ Developers, today we have a great collection of C++ posts about Move Constructors and the Copy Assignment Operator. All of the C++ examples in these posts can be used with C++ Builder Enterprise, Architect, and Professional Editions, or the free version C++ Builder 11 CE Community Edition. These examples can be used in console applications, in VCL Windows applications, or in Multi-Device Firemonkey (FMX) applications on Windows and mobile.

Here, our standard C++ examples, can also be used with Dev-C++, BCC C++ Compilers, and some other compilers such as the GCC compiler. If you just starting out on your C++ journey and want to jump to a modern IDE and C++ compiler, there is a free version of C++ Builder, C++ Builder 11 CE Community Edition released in April 2023. If you are a start-up developer, student, hobbyist, or just interested in learning to code then the C++ Builder Community Edition may well be just the thing for you.

Where can I learn Modern C++ with a free C++ compiler?

If you don’t know anything about C++ or the C++ Builder IDE, don’t worry, we have a lot of great examples on the LearnCPlusPlus.org website and they’re all completely free. Just visit this site and copy and paste any examples there into a new Console, VCL, or FMX project, depending on the type of post. We keep adding more C and C++ posts with sample code. In today’s round-up of recent posts on LearnCPlusPlus.org, we have new articles with very simple examples that can be used with:

How to use a move constructor and copy assignment in modern C++ with C++ Builder CE?

In a modern C++, there are a number of features which help you learn, master, and remember the various features and functions of the C++ language. One such feature of modern C++ is the move constructor that allows you to move the resources from one object to another without copying them. In the first post, we explain what the move constructor is in Modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-a-move-constructor-in-modern-c/

Using a good quality C++ compiler actively helps you write better code and prompts you with tips on how to use the various capabilities of the C++ standards. In the next post, we explain what a typical declaration of a move constructor is. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-a-typical-declaration-of-a-move-constructor/

One of the move constructors is forcing a move constructor to be generated by the compiler, and in the next post, we explain the forced (default) move Constructor in Modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-a-default-forced-move-constructor-in-modern-c/

Other feature of a C++ are assignment operators such as copy assignment and move assignment operators. In C++, a copy assignment operator is used with “operator=” to create a new object from an existing one. In the next post, we explain assignment operator with copy assignment operator examples in C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-assignment-operator-in-c-classes/

Most C++ developers find that using OOP techniques help them to map real-world behavior and bring an organizational structure to data. These class attributes and methods are variables and functions that belong to the class – part of the class’s code and they are generally referred to as class members. Classes and structs are very useful in modern developing tools. There are some rules to support the principles of programming, one of which is the Rule of Three in C++. In the last post pick, we explain the Rule of Three in C++ with examples. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-rule-of-three-in-c/

How to learn modern C++ for free using C++ Builder CE with examples?

LearnCPlusPlus.org has been producing full of educational daily articles about C and modern C++ that can be used with C++ Builder, C++ Builder CE, Dev-C++, BCC Compiler and some other compilers such as the GCC compiler. Here are our post picks for today.

What might be next for C++ Builder?

According to David Millington’s post, C++ Builder is aiming to include some amazing features; CLANG v15, support for C++20 and a lot of C++23 features, Win64 primary OS, new code completion, Visual Assist C++ navigation and refactoring, and lots more.

Disclaimer: All new features and improvements discussed in posts regarding future versions of RAD Studio are not committed until completed, and GA released.

Note that Embarcadero announced the release of RAD Studio 11 Alexandria Release 3, also known as RAD Studio 11.3, along with Delphi 11.3 and C++Builder 11.3. This release is focused on quality and improvements, building on the great new features in RAD Studio 11 Alexandria three previous releases.
