No C++ love when it comes to the "hidden features of" line of questions? Figured I would throw it out there. What are some of the hidden features of C++?
Most C++ programmers are familiar with the ternary operator:
x = (y < 0) ? 10 : 20;
However, they don't realize that it can be used as an lvalue:
(a == 0 ? a : b) = 1;
which is shorthand for
if (a == 0) a = 1; else b = 1;
Use with caution :-)
