C++ Standard Template Library – List

The Standard Template Library (STL) is one of the most essential features of C++. It has very much grown in recent years. Basically, the Standard Template Library provides templatized, general-purpose classes as well as methods. These classes and functions/methods...

C++ Vectors – std::vector – Containers Library

Vectors are sequence container (same as dynamic arrays) which resizes itself automatically. The size changes (i.e. vector can shrink or expand as needed at run time) when an element is inserted or deleted, with their storage being handled automatically by the container. Just like arrays, vector elements are placed in adjacent memory locations so that they can be accessed and traversed using iterators i.e. subscript operator [].

The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference

The C++ Standard Library provides lots of built-in functionality in the form of the Standard Template Library (STL). The STL was created as the first library of generic algorithms and data structures for C++, with four ideas in mind.

Common Text Transformation Library

Common Text Transformation Library, CTTL for short, is a set of C++ classes and functions to understand and modify text data. The library implementation is based on STL classes and algorithms. The library provides components for creating lexical analyzers making...

Standard Template Library

The STL (Standard Template Library) was originally a third-party library from HP and later SGI, before its incorporation into the C++ standard. The standard does not refer to it as “STL”, as it is merely a part of the standard library, but many people...

Generic containers

Container classes are the solution to a specific kind of code reuse problem. They are building blocks used to create object-oriented programs. They make the internals of a program much easier to construct. A container class describes an object that holds other objects. Container classes are so important that they were considered fundamental to early object-oriented languages
