This reference guide is an alphabetical listing of the header files, classes, containers, algorithms, iterators, and other constructs of the Apache C++ Standard Library Module. The entry for each class includes:
An illustration showing the inheritance hierarchy, or the general category to which the class belongs
A brief summary of the class functionality
A synopsis indicating the header file(s) associated with the class
A description of the class
The C++ code that describes the class interface
All methods associated with the class, including constructors, operators, member functions, and so on. These are grouped together and listed alphabetically within each group. These groups are not a part of the C++ language, but they are a useful way to organize information.
Examples and warnings
Entries that are not classes include other appropriate categories of information. In general, there is still a brief summary of the entry's functionality, followed by a more detailed description, and in many cases an example.
