Essential Tools Module Reference Guide

1.2 Conventions

This documentation contains frequent references to "self." This should be read as *this.

If your compiler supports namespaces, you may need the qualifier std:: for any identifiers that are in the Standard C++ Library. If your compiler does not support namespaces, you will have to remove it.

Type conventions used in this manual are the same as in all Rogue Wave manuals, as explained in detail in the Essential Tools Module User's Guide.

Each class that inherits from another class (or other classes) includes an illustration that shows the inheritance hierarchy. For example, the following illustration indicates that class A inherits from class B:

When a class inherits from more than one class, or there are multiple levels of inheritance, all of the inheritance relationships are shown. For example, the following illustration indicates that class A inherits from class B and from class C, which inherits from class D.

The notation system used in the inheritance hierarchies is based on the Object Modeling Technique (OMT) developed by Rumbaugh and others. It is similar to the notation used in Design Patterns, by Gamma, Helm, Johnson, and Vlissides.
