    typeid and the type_info object

    My instructor started using the typeid() function and, from what I've found out from google searches, the type_info object. my question is: how portable is this and is it a windows thing?

    These ARE part of the language standard.

    Yeah, typeid, type_info, and the <typeinfo> header are all part of the standard.
