The standard template library (STL) supplies the programmer with a container class that aids in string operations and manipulations. The
string class not only dynamically resizes itself to cater to the application’s requirement but also supplies useful helper functions/methods that help manipulate the string and work using it. Thus, it helps programmers make use of standard, portable, and tested functionality in their applications and focus time on developing features that are critical to it.
