Introduction

In this article we’re going to look at a new feature of templates in C++11 – the concept of the variadic template.

Variadic templates allow us to create functions and classes, not only with generic types, but also a variable number of generic

Introduction

Templates are a very powerful – but often very confusing – mechanism within C++. However, approached in stages, templates can be readily understood (despite their heinous syntax).

The aim of this series of articles is to guide beginners through the syntax and semantics of the foundation concepts in C++ template

The term polymorphism is central to most discussions in and around object oriented design and programming. However I find that many people are still confused or don’t have a complete understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of using polymorphism.

I have heard many different simplified definitions of the root term for polymorphism, usually relating to chemistry or biology. Rather than trying to justify the name, I’ll give you my very simplistic definition from a software perspective.  Simply put polymorphism means:
