Have you ever wondered which of the following variants you should use in range-based for loops and when?
const auto&&, or
decltype(auto)? This post tries to present rules of thumb that you can use in day-to-day coding. As you will see, only four of these variants are generally useful.
If you have been using Git long enough, you have probably heard about
git add -p/--patch, which allows you to selectively stage parts of files. However, did you know that many other Git commands support this argument as well? Among them are
log, and they represent the main topic of the present post.
I have been using Vim as my primary (and only) text editor since 2009. Over the years, I have discovered many useful things about Vim that I wish I knew earlier because they dramatically improved my text-editing efficiency. In this post, I would like to share the most important ones with you.
Tmux is a great tool that allows you to have separate terminal sessions inside a single terminal window. Inside each session, you can have multiple windows, and each window can be separated into multiple panes. Take a look at this screenshot to get an idea. In this post, I would like to share and explain my configuration of this tool. Hopefully, you will find some nice tweaks in there that will help you to speed up your workflow.
Since C++11, one can put the initialization of data members directly into structure or class definition. However, this change has consequences with regards to the construction of such structures. Indeed, by adding member initializers into a structure may render your previously working code non-compilable. In the present post, I describe this change, the related issues, and explain how to get around them.
In this post, I would like to present weechat-notify-send, a new WeeChat script that I wrote. It sends highlight and private-message notifications through notify-send.
I have been using Git extensively since 2011. Over the years, I have configured it to make myself more productive. In this post, I would like to share and explain my Git configuration with you. Hopefully, you will find some nice tweaks in there that will help you to speed up your workflow.
This post describes script git-edit-index that allows you to open an editor to stage or unstage files in Git, just like when you perform an interactive rebase. It thus represents a faster alternative to
git add -i or
There are many projects written in C++98. Moreover, lots of programmers are still used to C++98. However, with the standardization of C++11 and C++14, C++98 is becoming obsolete. In this post, I would like to list some of the features of C++11 that can be used to improve C++98 code in situations where it is possible to use the new standard.
