Compound statements?

Recommended Posts

If you mean something like:

{
//stuff
// something that isn't an if, while, etc.
{
// other stuff
}
}

Then the nested compound statement introduces a new scope. You can use it to make sure a temporary value you need is destroyed as soon as it isn't being used. Ex:

Mutex m("mutex name");
{
Lock l(m);
// stuff that needs to be done while the mutex is locked
}
// mutex is unlocked as as the scope is exited
