Do you want to write an entire const correctness article for fixing char* when it should be const char*? Go ahead. However, I don't want to.Quote:
I request, Elysia, that you avoid creating articles that overlap one another for the time being, for two important reasons. The encyclopedia is not at all complete and we can argue about what articles can be coupled together as "common mistakes" and where to refer readers to at a later date. By the incompleteness statement I mean that there are a lot of topics still out there - inheritance is another big place where people screw up a lot, is it "common"? Does anybody want to teach OOP? We're hardly ready to start this sort of spit-shining.
There are a lot of things and you can argue what to be added and not. But I don't think small things like that do not hurt.
Should it be linked to const correctness? Yes. Is there one one? No. Do I want to write one? No.Quote:
And secondly, some of the articles you've referenced don't seem to apply best to the mistakes in question. Why does const correctness relate to your article on vertual memory? Why not write the const correctness article instead?
Feel free to write one and change the link.
