First thing I try to do with user defined string literals of course has to be impossible even with C++14 :( Annoyingly enough this very feature (in the form of N3599) was meant to be included in C++14 but didn't make it. Can't have everything I guess...
Literal operator templates for strings. Overview. N2765 added the ability for users to define their own literal suffixes. Several forms of literal operators are available, with one notable omission: there is no template form of literal operator for character and string literals.
Memo to myself: If you ever again decide to store factory packaged, unused Fe3Cl etchant along with your other PCB manufacturing stuff in some drawer you'll have no reason to look into in the future as ordering PCBs will become just so cheap and convenient, be aware that after a few years the stuff will pull water through its packaging, continue to dissolve it and make a fricking mess in said drawer :(
Wow. Mind blown in multiple ways. While there were tons of amazing iterative improvements from lots of companies this year, Microsoft definitely stands our with some very innovative new hardware products. Imho their vision is starting to come together quite nicely. Now they just have to get their userbase to share it.
CppCon 2015 keynote by Bjarne is online. That was fast.
EDIT: Having watched the talk now I have to say it's quite a bold vision being presented here. I like it. Really looking forward to the standardized tooling that might be created around these guidelines and the GSL (which hopefully will end up in the STL rather sooner than later...).
Unfortunately outside of greenfield programming without big external dependencies I don't see any quick way of reaping the full benefits anytime soon. There's just to much code out there without these annotations. Too much things that generate/expect/use the old style(s) of C++.
In any case I'll have to spend some time to actually look closer at what is being offered here, where it is going now that it is open to the community and if it can be useful in the specific applications I'm using C++ for.
There's a fluid you can spread on magnetic media to visualize their magnetic field. Fascinating to actually see these patterns. The video linked from the article shows among others normal magnetic stripes, Cassette tape and Floppies.
