Google’s C++ Style Guide

January 7, 2010

When using a computer language, I find it interesting that it is as important to know what language features to use as it is to know what language features not to use.

Looking through Google’s C++ style guide a while back it struck me that programmers eventually arrive at a similar set of features to avoid in a language; however, it takes trial and error to figure out to avoid.

In C++, exceptions and particularly templates look inviting, until you have tripped a few times over the problems that they introduce.
