Pages missing from documentation (ex bitscan) RRS feed

All replies

  • Well, the version in docs is available. _BitScanForward.

    As for why the version on msdn is unavailable, I don't know. It could be that Microsoft are finally consolidating all of the VC documentation on the docs site.

    This is a signature. Any samples given are not meant to have error checking or show best practices. They are meant to just illustrate a point. I may also give inefficient code or introduce some problems to discourage copy/paste coding. This is because the major point of my posts is to aid in the learning process.

  • I hope they are not moving it out as this is the page that it will go to if you search for it in visual studio.

    I do like the docs layout better without that annoying crappy get visual studio 2017 floating bar.

  • Hi Schmide,

    thanks for posting here.

    The link you provided is for _BitScanReverse method. The document for _BitScanForward in vs2015 is as below.


    They all work fine on my computer.

    VS2017 has its own documents links as Darran provided. For more documents about c++ in vs2017, please refer to this document below.


    Besides, this forum is about c++ code issues. For your case, I suggest you post on Microsoft Community for better help next time.

    Best Regards,
