QuestionOkay, real C++ question - who makes use of the auto keyword? Pin

I'm trying to straighten out some pointer "arithmetic" in some existing code. The expressions themselves are overly ambiguous to say the least. In part of my readings, I've come across the "auto" keyword where the compiler deduces what type I need. At least that's what I got from all of the verbiage.

This seems a) dangerous and b) adds another level of mental indirection to what you are trying to accomplish. To me, software needs to be very clear and explicit in what data you are working with and what you intend to do with it. A lot of the "here is how auto will help you" descriptions justify it by saving typing when trying to make use of other classes, templates and the like. It feels like the C++ committee came up with a feature A then added feature B to make using A easier. I'm now doing battle with lambda expressions - another story.

So, in your code - do you make extensive use of auto, and how does it help you?
