different types of castings..

Answer / mms zubeir

The above answers are correct. I would like to add some
details to those.

1. const_cast:- is used to cast away the constness of a

2. static_cast:- is used to cast between two types with the
available static information about the variable. It doesn't
know anything about the run time information. Additionally,
it knows the type and access previledges of the
variables/objects involved in the casting. For example, we
cannot cast a private base.

3. reinterpret_cast:- is used to cast between any pointer
types and the types need not be related. The developer
needs to take care of the correct types to be casted.

4. dynamic_cast:- is used to cast between polymorphic types
only. It allows downcasting and casting between siblings as
well. If the cast fails, it returns a 0/NULL instead of the
pointer to the resultant object incase of success.

write a program to print * * * * * *

2 Answers  

This program numbers the lines found in a text file. Write a program that reads text from a file and outputs each line preceded by a line number. Print the line number right-adjusted in a field of 3 spaces. Follow the line number with a colon, then one space, then the text of the line. You should get a character at a time and write code to ignore leading blanks on each line. You may assume that the lines are short enough to fit within a line on the screen. Otherwise, allow default printer or screen output behavior if the line is too long (i.e., wrap or truncate). A somewhat harder version determines the number of spaces needed in the field for the line numbers by counting lines before processing the lines of the file. This version of the program should insert a new line after the last complete word that will fit within a 72-character line.
