If you’re using container classes in your C++ code (and you probably should be, even if it’s just std::array) then one of the things you’re going to want to do (a lot) is iterate through the container accessing each member in turn.

Without resorting to STL algorithms we could use a for-loop to iterate through the container.

If the above is baffling to you there are plenty of useful little tutorials on the STL on the Internet (For example, this one)

We could […]

Iterating through containers… options, options options.

Iterating through a container of objects is something we do a lot.  It’s boilerplate code.  It’s also a nice indicator of how C++ is raising the level of abstraction in programming.

So let’s start with a simple container of ADTs:

Now let’s iterate through them, calling the mf() method on each object in turn.  First, we’ll ‘roll our own’ loop.

That’s imperative programming in action; and has the warm, fuzzy feeling of recognition for all C programmers.

Modern C++, […]
