Chapter 16. An Introduction to the Standard Template Library
Put in simple terms, the standard template library (STL) is a set of template classes and functions that supply the programmer with
Containers for storing information
Iterators for accessing the information stored
Algorithms for manipulating the content of the containers
In this lesson, you will gain an overview on these three pillars of STL.
Containers are STL classes that are used to store data. STL supplies two types of container classes:
As the name suggests, these are containers used to hold data in a sequential fashion, such as arrays and lists. Sequential containers are characterized by a fast insertion time, ...
