The only time I've used it is when deriving from a class to make use of its functionality, but not wanting to make all of the public base class members accessible. For example, making a fixed vector class that you can iterate over:
C++
 #include <iostream>
 #include <vector>

template <class T> struct fixed_vector : private std::vector<T> {
  using std::vector<T>::vector;
  using std::vector<T>::begin;
  using std::vector<T>::end;
};

int main() {
   auto f = fixed_vector<int>{1,2, 3,4 ,5};

   for(const auto i : f) {
      std::cout << i << std::endl;
   }
   f.push_back(10); // Causes compiler error
}
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
