You can write ISO C++ programs that are statically type safe and have no resource leaks. You can do that simply, without loss of performance, and without limiting C++’s expressive power. This model for type- and resource-safe C++ has been implemented using a combination of ISO standard C++ language facilities, static analysis, and a tiny support library (written in ISO standard C++). This supports the general thesis that garbage collection is neither necessary nor sufficient for quality software. I describe the techniques used to eliminate dangling pointers and to ensure resource safety. Other aspects – also necessary for safe and effective use of C++ – have conventional solutions so they are mentioned only briefly here.

The techniques and facilities presented are supported by the Core C++ Guidelines and enforced by a static analysis tool for those.
