C++ Interview Answers
by Curtis Krauskopf
So how did you do on your simulated C++ job interview?
Did you go the extra step of making a video tape of
your interview or did you just mentally check-off each
question in Part 1 of this article?
This article provides answers to the sample C++ interview
questions provided in part 1. If you haven't done it
already, please take the extra step of reading
part 1 first and simulating an interview before
reading this article.
When I was researching good C++ questions (and their
answers) on the Internet, I was astonished to find many
pages with legitimate questions but incorrect answers.
Some of the questions even had multiple incorrect answers.
Even some of the sample programs were so obviously wrong
that they wouldn't even compile without being recoded.
That is not the case for the C++ questions and answers
at The Database Managers' web site. Every question has
been carefully answered and many have cross-references
to other (reputable) web sites that have complete answers
to the questions.
In addition, every code sample was copied directly
from an example program that answers the question. In
addition, all of the code
for the C++ questions and answers can be downloaded
directly from The Database Managers' website.
With that spoiler warning out of the way, let's look
at the C++ interview answers:
