The C++ Standard Library provides a selection of different data structures called containers that you can use to store collections of data elements. Containers work in tandem with algorithms, described in Chapter  4. Containers and algorithms are designed in such a way that they do not need to know about each other. The interaction between them is accomplished with iterators. All containers provide iterators, and algorithms only need iterators to be able to perform their work.
