Chapter 17. C++ Standard Libraries

The aim of this chapter is to provide you a working overview of the Standard Libraries that are supported under C++. In the same way that the book covered the C Standard Libraries, the aim is to allow you to use this part of the book as a kind of reference. The concepts are, however, introduced in a pragmatic manner.

The three basic categories of library that are supported are the C language libraries (albeit in a special way), libraries for input and output, and data type-specific libraries. Each library is implemented as a system of classes, which means that you cannot only access the functions directly but also derive functionality from them.
