In another thread we (me, clawson and smileymicros) commited a threadjack, risking derailing a discussion on "Why is it hard to go from assembler to C" into a discussion on "from C to C++". I promised to start a new thread for the latter discussion, and here it is.
I'm interested in the following:
1) If you actually have used C++ for embedded systems, and you have an "idiom" (avoiding the term "design pattern" for survival reasons), then please do!
2) If you have something that you'd like to write in C++ but don't know how - let's discuss!
3) If you are coming from (typically) C and have a genuine interest in trying out C++, but have difficulties getting over the hurdles: Please share experiences or ask.
What I'd be glad to avoid here is the sweeping allegations as to the un-effectiveness of C++. We've had those over and over. Seek them out and read them first please. Well thought out examples of when C++ actually degenerates are welcome for discussion.
As usual, I'm hard pressed with work and stuff, and spend too much time ranting here at 'freaks - part of the reason my C++ demo app is only half-way, and still partly just a concept. But I'll get there, just wait. Christmas, maybe..
Anyhow - share your C++ experiences and/or questions re embedded system.
(BTW: If you just like to read some interesting and often quite good stuff on C++ in embedded systems, do go through Dan Saks' articles at embedded.com !)
