A plum or gage is a stone type of fruit tree in the genus Prunus, subgenus Prunus. The subgenus is distinguished from additional subgenera (peaches, cherries, bird cherries, etc) in the shoots containing a terminal bud and the side buds solitary (not clustered), the flowers being grouped 1-5 together on short stems, and the fruit containing a groove running down one side, and a smooth stone.

Dynamic Memory in C++

Until now, in all our programs, we have simply had as much memory obtainable as we declared for our variables, having the size of all of them to be determined in the source code, before the implementation of the program. However, what if we need a variable amount of memory that can simply be determined during runtime? For instance, in the case that we necessitate some user input to determine the required amount of memory space. To solve such problem the answer is dynamic memory, for which C++ integrates the operators new and delete.

The carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus) is a root vegetable, generally orange or white, or pink in color, with a crunchy texture when fresh. The appropriate for eating part of a carrot is a taproot. It is a cultivated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, national to Europe and southwestern Asia. It has been bred for its very much inflamed and more palatable, less woody-textured edible taproot, but is still the similar species.

It is a biennial plant which grows a rosette of leaves in the spring and summer, at the same time as building up the fat taproot, which stores big amounts of sugars for the plant to flower in the second year. The peak stem grows to about 1 m tall, with an umbel of white flowers.

Carrots can be eaten raw, complete, chopped, grate, or added to salads for color or texture. They are also time and again chopped and boiled, fried or steamed, and cooked in soups and stews, as well as fine baby foods and choose pet foods. A well known dish is carrots julienne. Grated carrots are used in carrot cakes, as healthy as carrot puddings, an old English dish thought to have originated in the early 1800s.
