Let’s look at the
string constructors. After all, one of the most important things to know about a class is what your options are when creating objects of that class. Listing 16.1 uses seven of the
string constructors (labeled
ctor, the traditional C++ abbreviation for constructor). Table 16.1 briefly describes the constructors. The table begins with the seven constructors used in Listing 16.1, in that order. It also lists a couple of C++11 additions. The constructor representations are simplified in that they conceal the fact that
string really is a
typedef for a template specialization
basic_string<char> and that they omit an optional argument relating to memory management. (This aspect is discussed later this chapter ...
