comment Are include guards necessary if headers only contain declarations?
Agreed. It does not help that in C++ it is possible (and sometimes really the only way of getting an outcome) to have code in the header file. This causes a lot of confusion and the C / C++ divide is larger than many think. A mindset flip is needed to swap between C and C++ really effectively

comment Is the 'finally' portion of a 'try … catch … finally' construct even necessary?
Which sounds like a work around. Conceptually finally is cleaner. Though I must confess to rarely using it.

comment Can I use GPL software in a commercial application
@Deduplicator: One could of course put things on a public server. But remember it needs to be kept up to date (that is YOUR OBLIGATION), which means means that you need to have a PERSON regularly snapshot and/or separate things from your source control (after all you don't want public access to your entire proprietary source control do you?). Every change needs to be reflected into that public link thing. See... nothing is free.

@Aquarius Power: Grey area. Perhaps it is OK. I am not a lawyer. I suggest you get legal advice.

comment How Best Can I Use Git When My Employer Uses VSS?
Fighting what your employer does won't win friends, and is unlikely to influence people. Either try and make a case for change (and if you lose, accept that with good grace); or accept that opinions differ. This is a WORKPLACE which has much more going on in it than personal preferences. Part of being in a workplace is accepting that there are some things you can't change.
