Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Structured data, part of Learning C++ (2014).
…C++ provides the programmer with a powerful tool, called abstract…data types or ADT not to be confused with the…home security company, abstract data types are created by the…programmer and they consist of one or many primitive data types.…They are different from classes since they do not include any function definitions.…They only group, data items.…This is really useful, when we want to group the data together.…The abstraction allows us to create a general model of something.…For example, an employee structure data type might have an employee name.…An identifier, an hourly wage, a date of birth, and a mailing address.…Once we create this data structure, we…can create instances of the employee data type.…We can also use this data type in an array.…
Things to remember, to access data members use the dot operator.…To compare, two data structure instances, we…must compare each piece of data separately.…Finally, we can initialize a structure when we create it.…In this program, we're going to create a data structure of an employee.…
