Algorithm Optimizations – Advanced STL, Part 2

Part 2 of my video lecture series exploring the Standard Template Library's implementation is now available.  In this part, I walk through how our STL algorithms equal() and copy() use template metaprogramming to detect when it's safe to call memcmp() and memmove(), which are potentially faster than the generic loops. In Part 1's ...
