I’m one of the moderators of the [comp.lang.c++.moderated] Usenet group. Although I no longer develop software for a living I may do so again. Meanwhile programming (mostly in C++, and mostly in Windows) is my favorite hobby.
I plan to blog about various programming and design problems I encounter. And at first about a C++ library I’m developing called
cppx, which provides some core functionality for general C++ programming – like reasonable basic types, optional argument support, C++98 argument forwarding, various smart pointers, non-mutable strings, containers and so on. Most of this is a matter of reimplementing and repackaging things I’ve done before (e.g. “Alf’s StringValue” at SourceForge), but in a more pure and accessible way.
