    Yes, obviously, if we're talking about std::vector.

    Creating an instance of a vector as opposed to doing what else with it?

    The whole STL would be rather meaningless if we couldn't instantiate any of the containers/objects that are described within it.
    "Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods."

    Since std::vector is a template, you need to specify a type to create an instance of it. eg.
    Code:
    std::vector<int> intVec;
