double/int/string to bool in c++


int main(void) {
  using namespace std;
  vector<bool> a;
  copy(a.begin(), a.end(), ostream_iterator<bool>(cout, "\n"));
  return 0;

Pointers and integers, and also booleans, are integral types. The first three are all either pointers or integers, and since they are all non-zero, they convert to the boolean value true. The fourth value of type double converts to a zero integral value and hence false.

Conversion of doubles that are not representable as integral values (like infinity and NaN) is undefined.

You can redirect stdout to stderr by doing 1>&2

echo test 1>&2 

1 is stdout. 2 is stderr.

Here is one way to remember this construct (altough it is not entirely accurate): at first, 2>1 may look like a good way to redirect stderr to stdout. However, it will actually be interpreted as “redirect stderr to a file named 1“. & indicates that what follows is a file descriptor and not a filename. So the construct becomes: 2>&1.
