About this book


This quick C++17 guide is a condensed code and syntax reference to the popular programming language, fully updated for C++17. It presents the essential C++ syntax in a well-organized format that can be used as a handy reference.

In the C++17 Quick Syntax Reference, you will find short, simple, and focused code examples.  This book includes a well laid out table of contents and a comprehensive index allowing for easy review. You won’t find any technical jargon, bloated samples, drawn out history lessons, or witty stories in this book. What you will find is a language reference that is concise, to the point and highly accessible.  The book is packed with useful information and is a must-have for any C++ programmer.

You will:
  • Use template argument deduction for class templates
  • Declare non-type template parameters with auto-folding expressions and auto deduction from braced-init-list
  • Apply lambdas and lambda capture by value
  • Work with inline variables, nested namespaces, structured bindings, and selection statements with initializer
  • Use utf-8 character literals
  • Carry out direct-list initialization of enums
  • Use these new C++17 library features or class templates from std::variant, optional, any, string_view, invoke, apply and more
  • Do splicing for maps and sets, also new to C++17
