What are namespaces, functors, and iterator classes in C++?
Namespaces reduced name collisions where an application may have various libraries of the same name. The using declaration makes it possible for a namespace without using a scope operator.
There are five types of iterator classes which input iterators, output iterators, forward iterators, and bidirectional iterators. These are usually stored in stored in lists and queues according to some ordering relation as defined in a binary tree.
Functors are a function pointer which holds the address of some pointer.
#include
using namespace std;

class Matcher
{
int target;
public:
Matcher(int m) : target(m) {}
int operator()(int x) { return x == target;}
};

int main() {
Matcher Is5(5);
int n=6;

if (Is5(n)) { // same as if (n == 5) return 0;
cout << "n and Is5 are equal" << endl; } else { cout << "not equal"< NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
