For the first year I will lock it down with baby-friendly programs mostly only icons and widgets (e.g: solar system, bouncing ball, sliding block puzzle, moon and stuff) so no taskbar on WMs like: Educational Desktops(most *nix flavors offer free Edu-D-tops i.g.

C++ had lambda functions!

Posted 01-31-2013 at 01:21 AM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

I'm doing a CS class which forces me to use C++. I was not very excited about this. However, I have recently be greatly encouraged by the discovery that C++ does, in fact, have lambda functions (or, more properly, anonymous functions) at least in the C++11 standard:
