Here's the GIST with my code snippet for coercing lambdas in to functors/callbacks/hooks.

+Dan Kegel Sorry for hurting everyone's brain. ;-)

I realized I didn't reshare this post earlier, so I just did so now, and added some notes about the presentation: https://plus.google.com/117025825144195468236/posts/DfUKcZrsj7Z

In case you weren't paying attention, boost-1.52 is out the door (would have told you sooner but I wanted my download to finish first ;-).

A great little article explaining the importance of all the atomic operator variants in C++11.

Looks like Microsoft is conducting a poll for priorities on their C++ compiler development. Vote early!

.....vote often.

Whuck? How do you put "refactoring" in to a compiler?

Come to April's LAC++ to hear +Brandon Harvey introduce Greenhouse -- a new C++ SDK from Oblong Industries -- and learn everything there is to know (and then some) about return type polymorphism in C++ from +Christopher Smith.

Very, very quick notes regarding initializer_lists and c++11's new `for` syntax.

This site is great. I love what the C++ standards committee is doing these days. I wish more standards committees operated like this.

We had a lot of discussion last night about using std::uncaught_exception() to automatically turn off throw. The problem is, if you are inside a try block that will catch the exception you are throwing, it is actually safe to throw --and there isn't a clear way to determine if that is indeed the case.

Looks like std::uncaught_exception() is a lot like exception specifications: not as useful as one might have hoped. I've created a gist which highlights the problem (uses C++11, so you need a fairly recent version of clang to compile it). The problem shows up at line 119.

This morning I was asked about C++ unit testing frameworks. Here's my answer. What would yours be?

I've mostly been using Google Test [ http://code.google.com/p/googletest/ ] which integrates nicely with Google Mock [ http://code.google.com/p/googlemock/ ].

The Boost libraries (which you are going to want to start to get familiar with) come with their own test library [ http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_50_0/libs/test/doc/html/index.html ] which is a bit more spartan, but has worked well for me.

If you want something more old school, but which hasn't been left for dead, seriously consider CxxTest  [ http://cxxtest.com/ ].

There are definitely more out there, but those are the ones I've played with. I'm also not above just rolling my own unit tests without a framework (literally just building programs that return a 0 or 1 on success or failure) if the project is sufficiently small enough.
