I’ve recently gained interest in OpenCV. The problem with this is, that in most modern tutorials and walkthroughs it seems…
Vector can find elements in linear time, hashtable in constant time. That’s a pretty elementary part of computer science. However, better complexity does not always mean it’s faster.
How about defining the variable, initialising it and writing code for serialisation and deserialisation on a single line of code?
It’s somewhat annoying that a factory needs to depend on all classes that inherit from the common interface. This issue can be avoided using a self-registering factory.
C++ has a bad reputation for long times needed for development. However, as this task has shown, it does not deserve this reputation.
Serialisation into human readable formats tends to be a tedious task in programming languages without a lot of reflection. Here is a trick to make it far less repetitive in C++.
An ironic advice about programming… or better to say, an advice how to get fired from your job and then assaulted by me
