                   What is Design Pattern and why it is important ?
question 2 )
                   What are the essential parts of Exception Handling ?
                    I know ...try ...catch....throw...can anyone name more than this

question 3)  what is the technical term used to define the class below ?
               
class CanHash
{
  public:
     virtual bool operator == (const CanHash& ) const =0; // Compare two objects.
     virtual const char* KeyG() const =0; // Return the Key field.
 };

question 4) Can you give the difference between the two , and when you need to use whcih one ?

                             char* KeyG() const;
                             const char* KeyG() ;

Sounds like homework or Interview questions.

FYI:
It's against EE policy to do homework questions.

Hi ,

      It's very easy to ask question in a different way , that doesn't look like a Home Work Or Interview . In that case you might have ended up in answering my questions if you knew the answers. Only difference was .... i was straight unlike other's.

  Let me come to point..... i work in a corporate company...and the questions i have asked was neither Interview nor HomeWork. You are correct upto some point..... those are the questions asked in one of the exam written by my room-mate in his online courses. And the exam is also over and we were going thru question paper and were not able to figure some of the above which i asked here. One more point ...those are not an easy questions to answer.

thanks

I notice you're grading record:
B A B B
Please check out the EE grade guide lines.

>>What are the essential parts of Exception Handling ?
>> I know ...try ...catch....throw...can anyone name more than this
There's also catch all, which is catch(...)

>>what is the technical term used to define the class below ?
It's an abstract class, because of he pure virtual function.

>>Can you give the difference between the two , and when you need to use whcih one ?

//Returns a non-constant pointer and,
char* KeyG() const;// Can not modify member variables and can not call a member function that is not const

const char* KeyG() ;//Can modify member variables, but returns a constant pointer

const char* KeyG() ;//Can modify member variables, but returns a constant pointer

--->> one more point i came to know in this case is that..."const" can be used before the function only when the return type is a * or an & type . And you can store in a non-constant pointer variable.

 *  ) in pointer case , you can not change any of them
 &  ) in reference case , it gives only read access and not write

-------------------------------------------------

 could anyone tell me what is design pattern is all about.........

thanks
