Trying to outsmart a compiler defeats much of the purpose of using one[/italic]
Brian Kernighan & P.J. Plauger
If you lie to the compiler, it will get its revenge[/italic]
There will always be things we wish to say in our programs[/italic]
that in all languages can only be said poorly[/italic]
A program that converts your C++ code into assembly code. The process of doing this, is called compile-time.
The compiler might give warnings and compiler errors.
Pay attention to compiler warnings [1,2].
Prefer compile-time errors over run-time errors .
Some C++ compilers
- ?GCC.EXE also known as G++, from the GNU Compiler Collection
