5 Easy Things To Learn Today About C++ Software

Hello Developers,

C++ is one of the oldest and stronger programming language. It has many functions and methods to manipulate strings and doing string operations as fast as possible in your C++ software. These options and different string types allow you to develop low memory usage and faster applications in all sorts of situations.

Today we will continue to look at some more string and wide string operations available in modern C++. We will learn to obtain string capacity and length. We will also learn how to compare strings. Iterators are another modern feature of C++ and we will learn how to use how to use then with Wide Strings. One of the important things is reading and writing text files. Also, we take a look at how to use wide strings in file I/O operations. Finally, we learn to use Form Properties of C++ Builder, Delphi and RAD Studio.

Head to LearnCPlusPlus.org to learn all about how to create C++ software

LearnCPlusPlus.org is packed full of great articles for professionals and beginners alike. The posts vary from articles suitable for people who are just starting to learn C++ – basics like string handling, pointers, loops, and all those fundamental building blocks of this rich and powerful programming language – to much more in-depth and advanced subjects like artificial neural networks and AI, along with the math behind it. Our focus is on the C++ language, particularly modern C++, and will work with almost any environment and IDE software you can choose although, of course, we believe RAD Studio C++ Builder is the best option!

If you are new to RAD Studio, we think these posts may help you as much as a rapid introduction to programming in C++, all the way to the most robust, modern, and latest techniques for those more experienced with the language. For those who are perhaps wanting to expand their knowledge with the most up-to-date features, routines, and methodologies this is a great little boost (pun intended) to your C++ knowledge. The new RAD Studio 11C++ Builder 11, Delphi 11 are released with great new features and we are developing and testing new examples for you with the latest RADS 11 that means.LearnCPlusPlus.org examples are working well with the latest C++ Builder.

We wish you happy weeks, happy coding!


C++ Builder is the easiest and fastest C and C++ IDE for building simple or professional applications on the Windows, MacOS, iOS & Android operating systems. It is also easy for beginners to learn with its wide range of samples, tutorials, help files, and LSP support for code. RAD Studio’s C++ Builder version comes with the award-winning VCL framework for high-performance native Windows apps and the powerful FireMonkey (FMX) framework for cross-platform UIs.

There is a free C++ Builder Community Edition for students, beginners, and startups; it can be downloaded from here. For professional developers, there are Professional, Architect, or Enterprise versions of C++ Builder and there is a trial version you can download from here.
