Hello C++ Developers, this spring is another milestone for the C++, the latest RAD Studio, C++ Builder 11.3 has been released. This release is focused on quality and a broad range of improvements. In C+ Builder, code compilation is highly improved and a whole raft of bug fixes in 11.3 which go into making this a good choice of modern C++ compiler and IDE.
This week’s round-up post of recent C++ articles has 5 important topics for C++ developers. Today’s modern C++17 standard empowers us with all the language tools needed to build great quality highly efficient native front-end and back-end professional applications. Additionally, prior to that, the C++11 standard was a big step forward for functional programming with C++. It has brought many other features like automatic type deduction (
auto), lambda expressions, and
decltype features. This week, we explain 5 important features of C++11 in modern programming.
Learn what’s new in RAD Studio, C++ Builder 11.3
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.
What are the important features of the C++11 standard in modern programming?
In C++, enumeration is very important and widely used. In C++, enumeration can be done with
enum keyword which can be used in unscoped and scoped enumerations. C++ is a great programming language that has many options to enumerate variables efficiently and succinctly. The C++11 standard (and above, of course) has modern enumeration methods that can be used in a modern C++ Editor and compiler. In the first post, we explain what is the big difference between enum and strongly typed enum in modern C++ and why it matters. https://learncplusplus.org/whats-the-big-difference-between-enum-and-strongly-typed-enum-in-modern-c/
Variables and memory usage are important in programming, and how we handle these are improved in every C++ standard. One of the great features is null pointer constants in modern C++ which was introduced with the C++11 standard. In the next post, we explain what a null pointer constant (nullptr ) is with some very simple examples. https://learncplusplus.org/learn-what-a-null-pointer-constant-nullptr-is-in-modern-c/
The C++11 was also a big step for functional programming, and it brought many other very useful features like automatic type deduction (
auto), lambda expressions, and decltype features. In this post, we meet the needs of some of the most searched-for C++ terms and explain what is
auto in today’s modern C++ and how to use auto-typed variables. https://learncplusplus.org/learn-what-auto-and-auto-typed-variables-are-in-modern-c/
In the next post we answer reader’s questions when we explain what
decltype is and how to use it with today’s modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-does-the-decltype-type-specifier-mean-in-c/
Finally, in this round up, we discuss how one of the great features of modern C++ is the ability to define templates. Templates are one of the most important techniques for you to learn, since it’s really only with knowledge of templates that you can claim to understand C++. So much of C++, including the standard library that you use every day as a C++ programmer, is built around the use of templates, and it’s very useful to be able to write them yourself too. so, in the last article today, we will explain how you can use type template parameters without a default in C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-are-the-type-template-parameters-in-c/

Thank you for your valuable comments and questions. All of them help improve the quality of our future posts and new code in these posts.
We have a lot of unique posts waiting to come. We keep adding new topics every week about C++ in general and specific topics for C++ Builder, Dev-C++, and for the other C++ compilers. Please keep following our LearnCPlusPlus.org website for the latest posts and updates. Feel free to comment and share with your colleagues, students, members – knowledge is power, and knowledge shared is empowering.
If you still don’t know what is new in the latest RAD Studio here is an official webinar replay about What is New in RAD Studio 11.3 Alexandria.
C++ Builder is the easiest and fastest C and C++ IDE for building simple or professional applications on the Windows, MacOS, iOS & Android operating systems. It is also easy for beginners to learn with its wide range of samples, tutorials, help files, and LSP support for code. RAD Studio’s C++ Builder version comes with the award-winning VCL framework for high-performance native Windows apps and the powerful FireMonkey (FMX) framework for cross-platform UIs.
There is a free C++ Builder Community Edition for students, beginners, and startups; it can be downloaded from here. For professional developers, there are Professional, Architect, or Enterprise version.
