I developed a program to convert celcius to kelvin and one to convert kelvin to Fahrenheit...now what I want to do is convert celcius to Fahrenheit reusing my programs with IO stream redirection,with input and output on batch files...clear?
The answer given in that question is correct. There is no C++ keyword equivalent to using() from C# because C++/CLI has deterministic finalization. When the object goes out of scope and there are no more references, it will be disposed.
You have 9 bits in your field and the default alignment of object code in 32bit architecture is word (32 bit) boundaries. So your structure item will be stored in a 32bit word. You could make it smaller by using a #pragma pack[^] statement.
