Using STL algorithms with cppcheck

by Paul Fultz II

From the article:

From Sean Parent’s C++ Seasoning talk, he explains how raw loops suffer from several issues:

  • Difficult to reason about and difficult to prove post conditions
  • Error prone and likely to fail under non-obvious conditions
  • Introduce non-obvious performance problems
  • Complicates reasoning about the surrounding code

Instead algorithms should be preferred, either using the algorithms in the standard library or writing a new algorithm. Even more so, Sean Parent suggests that all coding guildines should be replaceed with “No raw loops” in order to improve code quality...
