  1. In Topic: Question About C++ and Excel

    Posted 11 Feb 2016

    Well, if we're going with languages outside of C/C++, there's PHPExcel. I've used that! It's free and it's good at what it does. If there are many sheets to a workbook it could run out of memory, so set a high limit.

    I haven't tried it, but you might look into this:

  3. In Topic: Pointers - I don't get them

    Posted 10 Feb 2016

    A more literal version of the above code. ;)
    struct Object {
    	char var[1024 * 1024]; // 1MB of data
    };
    
    void badFunc(Object someObject) {
    }
    
    void goodFunc(Object *someObject) {
    }
    
    int main() {
    	Object *x = new Object();
    	Object y;
    
    	badFunc(y); // Makes 1MB copy of y and passes it to the function
    	goodFunc(x); // Just passes the object by address, where the parameter points to the Object in main
    
    	return 0;
    }
    
    
  4. In Topic: Resetting variables due to security?

    Posted 9 Feb 2016

    It's all stored in RAM, so yes, it's possible, except for the fact that modern operating systems don't give you that sort of access to RAM. You have no way of knowing in advance where your program will reside, for example.

    Yes, but even in those cases it's likely that attempting to scrub the data won't work because it will be too late. It might work, so I guess it's not entirely pointless. I think the benefits outweigh the cost.
