C++ Standard library
The standard C++ library is a collection of functions, constants, classes and objects
that extends the C++ language providing basic functionality to interact with
the operating system and some standard classes, objects and algorithms that
may be commonly needed. They can be divided in three main groups:
- C standard library
- Set of functions, constants and variables available also in C language.
They are divided in different header files:
(available also with the names
with the only difference that if included thus their content is declared
within the std namespace)
- iostream library
- Object-oriented library. Describes a hierarchy of classes, constants and objects
designed to perform input and output operations using streams.
- STL (Standard Template Library) (under construction)
- Set of standard class templates including vectors, queues, lists, strings, sets,
