Zero time strlen and strnlen? I am reasonably sure it is not me who first thought of this, but today, I figured writing a “zero time” strlen() and strnlen() in modern C++ is actually possible and obvious. Not for pointers though. For arrays of characters that is.
A “proper” and tested modern C++ code is HERE, on GitHub. dbj::strlen() and dbj::strnlen() to take proper care of char, wchar_t, char16_t and char32_t.
But it might contain some pieces of information that might come handy to more than few CxO ‘s right now. Especially if the said CxO ‘sare given the responsibility to “own” the IT landscape in some medium or large organization. Approx 50 seats onward, complexity depending.
In this context, and perhaps because of this post, I might be called a bit of a pessimist., which is calling himself a realist.
