Hello everyone, this week we have new C++ posts that can be compiled with C++ Builder 12 bcc64x or any compiler that supports C++17 standard and beyond. In this week’s posts, we explain what a copy assignment operator is and its types in usage with many C++ examples. In the other post, we explain the type-safe union,
std::variant with examples. In the last post that we picked, we explain the std::sample algorithm and how we can use it with an mt19937 random generator in modern C++.
Our educational LearnCPlusPlus.org site has a broad selection of new and unique posts with examples suitable for everyone from beginners to professionals alike. It is growing well thanks to you, and we have many new readers, thanks to your support! The site features a treasure-trove of posts that are great for learning the features of modern C++ compilers with very simple explanations and examples.

Where I can I learn C++ and test these examples 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, easy to understand 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:
- The free version of C++ Builder 11 CE Community Edition
- or a professional version of C++ Builder
- or free BCC32C C++ Compiler and BCC32X C++ Compiler
- or the free Dev-C++
How to use modern C++ with C++ Builder?
Classes and Objects are part of object-oriented methods and typically provide features such as properties and methods. One of the great features of an object-orientated language like C++ is a copy assignment operator that is used with
operator= to create a new object from an existing one. In the first post-pick, we explain what a copy assignment operator is and its types in usage with some C++ examples.
In C++ Builder 12, and modern C++ the
std::variant is one of the powerful features that comes with C++17. The
std::variant is a discriminated union that we can work with multiple data types. It represents a type-safe union and holds one of its types in definition. In the last post, we explain
std::variant with examples.
The C++ 17 standard brings us a lot of useful methods, templates, and algorithms. One of the great algorithms is
std::sample defined in the
<algorithm> header that samples at most
n elements uniformly from a given range. In the next post, we explain the
std::sample algorithm and how we can use it with an mt19937 random generator.
How to learn modern C++ for free using C++ Builder?
LearnCPlusPlus.org has been producing full of educational 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.
We like to hear your feedback. You motivate us so much with your likes and comments on social media (find us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Reddit, Twitter / X and all over) and here on the blogs too. Thank you for your valuable comments and questions. All of them help improve the quality of our future 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.
Do you want to know some news about C++ Builder 12?
A few weeks ago, David Millington, Senior Product Manager of C++ Builder, was one of the participants in the RAD Studio 12 launch webinar. RAD Studio 12 focused on many quality and stability improvements for both Delphi and C++ as well as the whole IDE. However, it also contains a number of really great improvements specifically for C++ developers including a new preview of the CLANG toolchain and the totally awesome integration of the popular Visual Assist functionality. The release webinar was one of the longest we’ve done for many years and reflects the sheer amount of new things packed into this bumper release.
Here is the full RAD Studio release webinar replay.
C++ Builder is the easiest and fastest C and C++ IDE for building everything from simple to professional applications. 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 versions of C++ Builder and there is a trial version you can download from here.
