    syntax question

    is there any similiarities between
    Code:
    std::cout
    and
    Code:
    int Car::GetYear()
    since Car is a class, is std a predefined class too?

    another question.

    if Car is a class and GetYear is a accessor function why do we use the :: ?

    std is a namespace. They're like libraries or packages in java. Its a group of classes, data, functions, and definitions.

    The :: is the scope resolution operator. You need to use it to tell the compiler that the thing on the right belongs in the thing on the left.
