    using containers with onjects

    Hi There,

    I am currently learning how to use the STL classes, more specifically the containers list, vector and deque.

    Using primitive types to create a container seems very straight forward but how would you use them to create a container of like objects ?

    And how could you use the iterator to access the members of a user defined type iie a class ?

    Thanks,

    One of the nice things about C++ is that well designed classes can act almost exactly like built in types. Provided your classes have the appropriate operators defined, you can use them in container classes with no trouble at all.

    >And how could you use the iterator to access the members of a user defined type iie a class ?
    The same way you would use an iterator with builtin types, just remember that you need to perform a member access operation to get to the interface.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
