C++ Pointer Tutorial

Because pointers can be ugh

"Regular" variables (not pointers)

To understand a pointer, let's review "regular" variables first. If you're familiar with a programming language without pointers like JavaScript, this is what you think when you hear "variable".

When declaring a variable by identifier (or name), the variable is synonymous with its value.

What forces layout / reflow

All of the below properties or methods, when requested/called in JavaScript, will trigger the browser to synchronously calculate the style and layout*. This is also called reflow or layout thrashing, and is common performance bottleneck.

Generally, all APIs that synchronously provide layout metrics will trigger forced reflow / layout. Read on for additional cases and details.

Element APIs

Getting box metrics
  • elem.offsetLeft, elem.offsetTop, elem.offsetWidth, elem.offsetHeight, elem.offsetParent

const webpackMerge = require("webpack-merge");
const applyPresets = (env = { presets: [] }) => {
const presets = env.presets || [];
/** @type {string[]} */
const mergedPresets = [].concat(...[presets]);
const mergedConfigs = mergedPresets.map(presetName => require(`./presets/webpack.${presetName}`)(env));
return webpackMerge({}, ...mergedConfigs);
};
You can’t perform that action at this time.
