About this book

Explore and learn introductory topics about programming mechanisms for memory management available for Microsoft Windows. This book uses C++ pointers and specialized APIs such as the smart pointers of the C++ Standard Library and Microsoft UCRT functions. You’ll also see how to work with lvalue and  rvalue references.

Introducing Mechanisms and APIs for Memory Management begins with topics about hardware features on the Intel x86 and Intel 64 (x64/amd64) hardware architectures and memory management. After reading this book you will be able to begin work with Windows memory management APIs.


What You Will Learn
  • Understand concepts and hardware features for Intel x86 and Intel 64 (x64/amd64) and memory management
  • Discover C++ programming language techniques and smart pointers 
  • Work with Microsoft UCRT management APIs for memory management

Who This Book Is ForSoftware and cloud developers working on Microsoft Windows.
