Before implementing containers such list, vector, queue, stack etc., by yourself, you can cut costs and software shipment time significantly by using The Standard Template Library, or STL. STL defines the following types of containers: vector, list, deque (double-ended queue), queue, stack, map, set and bitset – all of them are ready for use. Three more advantages of preferring STL over factory made containers are:
Portability – all standard conforming C++ implementations supply them;
Performance – STL containers were designed and implemented to meet strict efficiency demands;
Reliability – these containers were already debugged and tested.
What We Should Expect from Cell Phone Tech in the Near Future
The earliest cell phones included boxy designs full of buttons and antennas, and they only made calls. Needless to say, we’ve come a long way from those classic brick phones
