Hello¬†C++¬†Developers, recently we released the “Full list of features in C++11” on the¬†LearnCPlusPlus.org¬†website. These¬†features and examples may amplify your C++ applications. In addition, if you are developing game applications or music applications such as sound studio applications, we¬†have a C++ example¬†to read the WAV waveform audio file format¬†from its file header structure.¬†Here¬†we¬†also added two more posts about¬†how to¬†record¬†sound in WAV waveform¬†and¬†how to¬†play¬†a sound in C++ Builder.

As part of our constant drive for improving quality and driving forward new features based on your feedback there is also a new patch released for RAD Studio 12 Update 1. If you have RAD Studio 12.1 this is how you can patch it.

If you missed the webinar about the latest RAD Studio C++ Builder 12.1, here is the video of some of its great features.

Where I can I learn C++ and try these examples below with a free C++ compiler?

If you don‚Äôt know anything about C++ or the C++ Builder IDE, don‚Äôt worry, we have a lot of great, easy to understand examples on the LearnCPlusPlus.org website and they‚Äôre 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‚Äôs round-up of recent posts on LearnCPlusPlus.org, we have new articles with very simple examples that can be used with:

How to learn modern C++ with C++ Builder 12?

The ‚ÄúModern C++‚ÄĚ term started with the release of the C++11 standards, and then the C++14, C++17, and C++20 standards followed. Modern C++ consists of a lot of features of previous C++ standards too, and of course, those of the C Programming language from which C++ evolved. In the first post, we explain what is new in C++11 and we list all the features it brings to C++, there are a lot of free C++ examples that you can run on C++ compilers including bcc, bcc32, bcc32c, bcc64 compilers and the new Windows Modern bcc64x compiler of the latest C++ Builder 12.

Sound is one of the important parts of computer science and programming. The correct use of sound can add excitement to recreational apps such as games or it can act to alert the user to an important event or state change in a utility or business-focused program. We have many different sound formats to play sound files in our applications or mostly in our games, or sometimes we need to edit them to analyze or to apply some filters. Games, MIDI apps, sound editors, music studio apps, engineering apps, AI applications (such as voice recognition from sound or movie files), etc. Waveform Audio File Format (shortly *.WAVE or *.WAV files) are one of the oldest formats used for storing sound and they are still useful to play them from memory and it is easy to edit them. In the next post, we explain how we can read the WAV Waveform Audio File Format in C++.

Sounds are in wave format and in digital form sound has its volume change in timeline. In C++ Builder it is easy to use recording devices on Windows. To record a sound in multi-device applications we must use the FMX.Media.hpp header. In the next post, we explain how to record sound in WAV waveform in C++ Builder FMX applications on Windows.

In C++ Builder, if you want to warn for something beginning or done, we can use the Beep() command and we can directly play wav, and mp3 files by using the PlaySound() command in asynchronous and we can also use Play() method of MediaPlayer component. In the last post, we explain how to play sounds in modern C++ on Windows applications.
