comment Named output parameters vs return values
@AndresF. it's just terminology. E.g. C++ has no "procedures", nor "methods" - only "functions".

comment Named output parameters vs return values
@unholysampler, what do you mean by "bad documentation" - wrong documentation, or lack of documentation, or what?

comment Named output parameters vs return values
"Make functions return values" - can you also explain why functions should return values? "the only time that modifying your inputs is acceptable" - again, why?

comment Named output parameters vs return values
Please suggest another names for handle_message and set_some_value functions, so it would be clear what they return.

comment Using T[1] instead of T for functions overloaded for T(&)[N]
@James it's just an old, ugly, unsafe, redundant C code.

comment C++ and system exceptions
throw() works in run-time, so it's not an issue. nothrow works in compile-time, so yes, with hardware exceptions we can't use it. Regarding to complexity, just imagine that x->y works as x ? x->y : throw_null_pointer_dereference()

comment When should you use bools in C++?
It's not about "know when to use bool", it's about why do we have different names for similar types (like length_t) and why it's important that compiler checks types.

@HighPerformanceMark, it doesn't explain what corecursion is, we need another question

comment Function parameter names
@Vic, I don't think it's such a big deal. The first parameter have a decent name, so the second could be named so poorly just by occasion.
