How To Use A Move Constructor In Modern C++

pexels ketut subiyanto 4246266

Hello everyone. With the C++11 standards, the move constructor allows you to move the resources from one object to another object without copying them. In this post we have gathered together some recent C++ articles from LearnCPlusPlus.org about Move Constructors. All of the C++ examples in these posts can be used with C++ Builder Enterprise, Architect, Professional Editions, or the free version C++ Builder 11 CE Community Edition.

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 to code in 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 in C++ with C++ Builder CE?

The Move Constructor is one of the great features of Object Oriented Programming in C++. The move constructor allows you to move the resources from one object to another object without copying them. One of the move constructors is the Implicitly-defined Move Constructor which is defined or defaulted in a base class, and in the first post, we explain the Implicitly-defined Move Constructor in Modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-an-implicitly-defined-move-constructor-in-modern-c/

Another move constructor is the Implicitly-declared Move Constructor, which is declared in a base class. In the next post we explain the implicitly-declared move constructor in Modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-an-implicitly-declared-move-constructor-in-modern-c/

There is also an Eligible Move Constructor. In the next post, we explain an eligible move constructor in modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-an-eligible-move-constructor-in-modern-c/

The other move constructor term is the Trivial Move Constructor which is defined or defaulted in a base class. We explain what a trivial move constructor in C++ is and how to use it. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-a-trivial-move-constructor-in-modern-c/

Finally, the other move constructor is the Deleted Implicitly-declared Move Constructor (also it is shown in compiler errors as Implicitly-deleted Move Constructor) which is deleted in a base class directly or has been deleted because of some other declarations. In the last post, we explain the implicitly-declared move Constructor in Modern C++.
