comment What keywords are important to speedup the code in C++?
@EtiennedeMartel, that is a great link, it is specially reliable coming from Herb Sutter. I also think that const is for humans. It ease understanding code making clear which variables will change or which functions change the object. Notice that he is asking for keywords and I tried to give him some. Still some compilers could do something. The problem is that every compiler optimize different. Also using "explicit" will for sure not optimize anything, but helps pointing interesting spots. The real value is at the end, about how Fortran operates on a matrix and data oriented design

comment What is the role of C++ today?
You should have a look at Herb Sutter talk. He is one of the big C++ guys. The video es also quite recent. channel9.msdn.com/posts/C-and-Beyond-2011-Herb-Sutter-Why-C

@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner, and so I felt compelled to add point 5 and 6 ... ;-) In the case of inline they do a good job. On one hand the programmer can abuse and have inline when the compiler would not use them, on the other some compilers ignore the user completly, like the keyword "register" and I believe that most compilers today completely ignore it.

comment How to provide value?
@fuzzy Well, that was my point. Not everybody do things the right way under pressure. Sometimes I am told that certain things are secondary, but I know perfectly (and better) that ignoring them will make my life and the one of my colleagues a nightmare... I will get a new client later anyways. So what can I do to leave some good value behind?

@FrustratedWithFromsDesigner... I meant nice clandestine improvements like unit tests that no-one wants to write ;-)
