C++ QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. Is it possible to have Virtual Constructor? If yes, how? If not, Why not
possible ?

There is nothing like Virtual Constructor. The Constructor cant be virtual as the
constructor is a code which is responsible for creating a instance of a class and it
cant be delegated to any other object by virtual keyword means.

2. What about Virtual Destructor?

Yes there is a Virtual Destructor. A destructor can be virtual as it is possible as at
runtime depending on the type of object baller is balling to , proper destructor will
be called.

3. What is Pure Virtual Function? Why and when it is used ?

The abstract class whose pure virtual method has to be implemented by all the
classes which derive on these. Otherwise it would result in a compilation error.
This construct should be used when one wants to ensure that all the derived
classes implement the method defined as pure virtual in base class.

4. What is problem with Runtime type identification?
The run time type identification comes at a cost of performance penalty. Compiler
maintains the class.
5. How Virtual functions call up is maintained?
Through Look up tables added by the compile to every class image. This also
leads to performance penalty.
6. Can inline functions have a recursion?

No.
Syntax wise It is allowed. But then the function is no longer Inline. As the
compiler will never know how deep the recursion is at compilation time.

7. How do you link a C++ program to C functions?

By using the extern "C" linkage specification around the C function declarations.
Programmers should know about mangled function names and type-safe linkages.
Then they should explain how the extern "C" linkage specification statement
turns that feature off during compilation so that the linker properly links function
calls to C functions.

8. Explain the scope resolution operator?
It permits a program to reference an identifier in the global scope that has been
hidden by another identifier with the same name in the local scope.
9. How many ways are there to initialize an int with a constant?
1. int foo = 123;
2. int bar(123);
10. What is your reaction to this line of code? delete this;

It is not a good programming Practice.
A good programmer will insist that you should absolutely never use the statement
if the class is to be used by other programmers and instantiated as static, extern,
or automatic objects. That much should be obvious.
The code has two built-in pitfalls. First, if it executes in a member function for an
extern, static, or automatic object, the program will probably crash as soon as the
delete statement executes. There is no portable way for an object to tell that it was
instantiated on the heap, so the class cannot assert that its object is properly
instantiated. Second, when an object commits suicide this way, the using program
might not know about its demise. As far as the instantiating program is concerned,
the object remains in scope and continues to exist even though the object did itself
in. Subsequent dereferencing of the baller can and usually does lead to disaster. I
think that the language rules should disallow the idiom, but that's another matter.

11. What is the difference between a copy constructor and an overloaded
assignment operator?

A copy constructor constructs a new object by using the content of the argument
object. An overloaded assignment operator assigns the contents of an existing
object to another existing object of the same class.

12. When should you use multiple inheritance?
There are three acceptable answers:- "Never," "Rarely," and "When the problem
domain cannot be accurately modeled any other way."

Consider an Asset class, Building class, Vehicle class, and CompanyCar class.
All company cars are vehicles. Some company cars are assets because the
organizations own them. Others might be leased. Not all assets are vehicles.
Money accounts are assets. Real estate holdings are assets. Some real estate
holdings are buildings. Not all buildings are assets. Ad infinitum. When you
diagram these relationships, it becomes apparent that multiple inheritance is a
likely and intuitive way to model this common problem domain. The applicant
should understand, however, that multiple inheritance, like a chainsaw, is a
useful tool that has its perils, needs respect, and is best avoided except when
nothing else will do.

13. What is a virtual destructor?

The simple answer is that a virtual destructor is one that is declared with the
virtual attribute.
The behavior of a virtual destructor is what is important. If you destroy an object
through a baller or reference to a base class, and the base-class destructor is not
virtual, the derived-class destructors are not executed, and the destruction might
not be comple

14. Can a constructor throw a exception? How to handle the error when the
constructor fails?
The constructor never throws a error.
15. What are the debugging methods you use when came across a problem?

Debugging with tools like :
GDB, DBG, Forte, Visual Studio.
Analyzing the Core dump.
Using tusc to trace the last system call before crash.
Putting Debug statements in the program source code.

16. How the compilers arranges the various sections in the executable image?
The executable had following sections:-
Data Section (uninitialized data variable section, initialized data variable

section )
Code Section
Remember that all static variables are allocated in the initialized variable

section.
17. Explain the ISA and HASA class relationships. How would you implement
each in a class design?

A specialized class "is" a specialization of another class and, therefore, has the
ISA relationship with the other class.
This relationship is best implemented by embedding an object of the Salary class
in the Employee class.

18. When is a template a better solution than a base class?

When you are designing a generic class to contain or otherwise manage objects of
other types, when the format and behavior of those other types are unimportant to
their containment or management, and particularly when those other types are
unknown (thus, the generality) to the designer of the container or manager class.
