    organizing data types


    I've been wondering how do you guys organize different data types in c++.

    For instance datatype customer:

    class customer {
      std::string get_name() { return m_name; }
      std::string get_surname() { return m_surname; }
      std::string m_name;
      std::string m_surname;
    class customer_list {
      typedef std::string data_type;
      typedef std::deque<data_type> list;
      typedef list::size_type size_type;
    Or would you put
    typedef std::string list_type;
    inside customer class?

    Many thanks in advance!

    This code doesn't make any sense to me. Why is customer_list not just a typedef for std::list/vector/set<customer>?
    All the buzzt!
