7.10. Introduction to C++ Standard Library Class Template vector

We now introduce C++ Standard Library class template vector, which is similar to class template array, but also supports dynamic resizing. Except for the features that modify a vector, the other features shown in Fig. 7.25 also work for arrays. Standard class template vector is defined in header <vector> (line 5) and belongs to namespace std. Chapter 15 discusses the full functionality of vector. At the end of this section, we’ll demonstrate class vector’s bounds checking capabilities and introduce C++’s exception-handling mechanism, which can be used to detect and handle an out-of-bounds vector index.
