    The Meaningful C++ FAQ

    Do help write the most comprehensive C++ FAQ in existence. Answers to questions like these are meaningless, so don't bother. Remember this is a Meaningful FAQ.

    From now on a large part of your life will be spent finding and correcting your own mistakes.
    And if you are lucky and land yourself a good job, a whole lot more time will be spent finding and correcting other people's mistakes.
    That has to be good, no?

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
