About the Authors
  • Assuming readers have a basic familiarity with C or C++, Frantisek Franek describes the techniques, methods and tools available to develop effective memory usage. The overwhelming majority of "bugs" and crashes in computer programming stem from problems of memory access, allocation, or deallocation. Such memory related errors are notoriously difficult to resolve. Moreover, the role that memory plays in C and C++ programming is a subject often overlooked in courses and in books. Most professional programmers learn about it entirely through actual experience of the problems it causes.

    • Builds a coherent picture of memory role in C/C++ programs not found in any other single book
    • Deals with issues that can lead to expensive and hard to debug errors
    • Describes many subtle yet crucial aspects of memory handling such as constructors and destructors, and operators new and delete in C++
