Does a const reference class member prolong the life of a temporary?

Why does this: #include <string> #include <iostream> using namespace std; class Sandbox { public: Sandbox(const string& n) : member(n) {} const string& member; }; int main() { Sandbox sandbox(string(“four”)); cout << “The answer is: ” << sandbox.member << endl; return 0; } Give output of: The answer is: Instead of: The answer is: four 6 … Read more

OpenCV C++/Obj-C: Detecting a sheet of paper / Square Detection

I successfully implemented the OpenCV square-detection example in my test application, but now need to filter the output, because it’s quite messy – or is my code wrong? I’m interested in the four corner points of the paper for skew reduction (like that) and further processing … Input & Output: Original image: click Code: double angle( … Read more

Is the order of iterating through std::map known (and guaranteed by the standard)?

What I mean is – we know that the std::map‘s elements are sorted according to the keys. So, let’s say the keys are integers. If I iterate from std::map::begin() to std::map::end() using a for, does the standard guarantee that I’ll iterate consequently through the elements with keys, sorted in ascending order? Example: std::map<int, int> map_; … Read more

fork() branches more than expected?

Consider the following piece of code: #include <stdio.h> #include <sys/types.h> #include <unistd.h> int main(void) { int i; for(i = 0; i < 2; i++) { fork(); printf(“.”); } return 0; } This program outputs 8 dots. How can that be possible? Should not there be 6 dots instead? 3 Answers 3
