Right, if you think that was tough, then maybe http://cplus.about.com/od/beginnerctutorial/l/aa122802a.htm will be a bit simpler.  Or it may be easier to look at the links provided, then ask questions on what confuses you.

Heh, just noticed that that link and the one previously posted use the same example of a stack.  Ho hum...

You're not going to learn about templates by just reading about it.
You have to actually try the code out to get a full understanding.

I know many season programmers (who called themselfs C++ programmers), who don't know much about templates.

This is not something you're just going to pick over night.

You need to practice it.
Well download the zip file at ftp://ftp.prenhall.com/pub/esm/undergraduate_computer_science.s-043/CPPHTP/CPowerPo.zip
extract it and look at chapter#12. Its all about templates. I also recommend the text book. C++ How to program by D&D is the best book to begin with.
