Three Approaches to Accept Uncertain Number of Args in C++

Sometimes, we are supposed to accept uncertain number of arguments in C++.

In this post, I am going to introduce 3 ways to implement it, so that you can pick up one of them which is most fit for you in current situation.

SIGR: Yet Another Simple SIGnal manageR

Signal_(IPC) plays an important role in communication with POSIX system.

For example, what if our code been killed, interrupted, hung on? Generally, the operation system (I am talking about BSD, Unix-like, POSIX system, same in the follow but will omitted), will not really "KILL" it, it will just send a kill signal with id to this process, the this process will process this signal later.

Here is a table to describe the id to default action.

Multilib version problems found in CentOS

Recently, when I ran "yum update" for some update, which will get an error as follow:

--> Processing Dependency: libstdc++.so.6 for package: pcre-8.32-17.el7.i686
---> Package zlib.i686 0:1.2.7-17.el7 will be installed
--> Running transaction check
---> Package libcap-ng.i686 0:0.7.5-4.el7 will be installed
---> Package libstdc++.i686 0:4.8.5-16.el7 will be installed
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
       cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
       pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:

         1. You have an upgrade for libstdc++ which is missing some
            dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
            solve this by installing an older version of libstdc++ of the
            different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
            yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
            requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
            --exclude libstdc++.otherarch ... this should give you an error
            message showing the root cause of the problem.

         2. You have multiple architectures of libstdc++ installed, but
            yum can only see an upgrade for one of those architectures.
            If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
            can remove the one with the missing update and everything
            will work.

         3. You have duplicate versions of libstdc++ installed already.
            You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.

       ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
       this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
       do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
       much more problems).
