Approached in the right way, the C++ language has many benefits to offer the embedded software developer. Here are some brief guidelines in its use,highlighting areas of good practice ” things to do and things to avoid.

Dive in to C++ and survive

Programmer Christopher White guides you through the hazards of learning the ins and outs of the C++ language, the books to read, the tools to use and how to begin using it effectively in your embedded systems designs.

Guidelines for using C++ as an alternative to C in embedded designs: Part 1

In this two part tutorial, Colin Walls addresses the well-known barriers to use of C++ by C programmers, and provides some guidelines including cleaning up C and an in-between alternative he calls “C+.” First up: Why is C++ not more widely used?

Why C++ is a viable alternative to C in embedded systems design

While C enjoys a good reputation as a strong and powerful language for embedded development, C++ does not have quite such a broad appeal. With today's capable and sophisticated C++ environments this is often an incorrect belief.

Making the transition from C to C++

Although it has taken almost a decade, the transition from C to C++ is now gaining momentum in many complex software projects, in parallel programming for multicore apps and in hardware generation environments. Here’s a three step strategy for making the transition and migrating code from C to C++.
