    c-style string vs. c++-style strings

    Hy there,

    I'm reading about strings right now and the book I'm using only covers c-style string. It does mention c++-style strings, but it doesn't go into it. Allthough c-style strings seem to be ok, I would like to know more about c++-style strings.

    My question: Does anybody know good resources/tutorials on c++-style strings, so I can get into that aswell?

    The problem with the term string is that everyone defines it differently. The term c_style string is frequently used to indicate a naked null terminated string. I presume the term c++ style string is used by your author as the string class located in the standard template library, but I can't say for sure. There are many sources for information about STL and the classes contained therein.
