C++17 By Example: Practical Projects To Get You Up And Running With C++17

Discover the impressive capabilities of C++ and learn the skills you need to implement it in real life Key Features Leverage the power of C++ language constructs to build effective software Learn about file handling and pointers Build visually appealing GUI by using the power of Qt5 Get a deeper understanding of how to program C++ for a specific purpose by implementing a Domain Specific Language Book Description C++ is a general-purpose programming language built with a bias towards embedded programming and systems programming. Over the years, C++ has evolved and is used to develop software for many different sectors. Given its versatility and robustness, C++is a wonderful language to start your coding journey with. This book covers exciting projects built in C++ that show how to implement the language in different scenarios. While developing these projects, you will not only learn the language constructs but also how you can use C++ to meet your software requirements. The book starts with a brief introduction to C++ language constructs where you will learn essential concepts that are required to understand the projects covered in the book. The first module will build a library management system that will teach you how to perform efficient file handling and use pointers in your software. To give you a taste of GUI programming, the next module will build graphical applications using Qt 5. You will then be introduced to game design in C++ and build two interesting games. The final module will teach you how C++ can be used to create a Domain Specific Language. After reading this book, you will have mastered core programming concepts in C++, and how to implement them effectively. What you will learn Create object-oriented hierarchies and how to compile, link, and execute a simple program Implement classes with linked lists, templates, inheritance, operator overloading, and exception handling Efficient file handling and pointer structures Dynamic allocation and deallocation along with marshmallowing Qt features, including menus, toolbars, caret handling, and more Implement a Domain Specific Language in C++ Who This Book Is For This book is for developers who would like to develop software in C++. Basic programming experience would be an added advantage.
