Pointers and proper exception handling...

Many C++ programmers have been C programmers first. Therefore, a lot of times, you find statements written this way:

ptr = new type;

if(ptr == 0) // handle error...

This is a C programmer that does not yet know that the new operator will throw an error if the allocation cannot happen. This makes a lot of sense, but what does that mean to the C++ programmer?

Order Made! v1.9 published

After adding the Menu Only option in version 1.8, we now fixed a couple of small bugs and published version 1.9 of Order Made!

So, let’s start by setting a goal.

“I want a home worth $1.2 million dollars”
