A string in C++ is an ordered sequence of characters.
There are three possible ways to create a sequence of characters in C++, a ‘string’ is just one of these ways:
C-string, consists of an array of characters terminated by the null character ‘\0’. Strings of these forms can be created and dealt with using
<cstring>library. Note that the null character may not be the last character in the C-string array.
C++ stringis an object that is a part of the C++ standard library. It is an instance of a “class” data type, used for convenient manipulation of sequences of characters. To use the string class in your program, the
<string>header must be included. The standard library string class can be accessed through the std namespace.
