Before someone points me to the FAQ just for posting a thread with that kind of a subject, let me say that I already read it. That's why I have a question.
The FAQ says it's bad. CPPReference says it's okay. Eskimo.com says it's bad. CPlusPlus.com says it's okay.
It seems like every other source tells a different story. Which is it? And why is there so much conflicting information?
