Hi Experts,

There is a keyword, cast< > in C++.  How it is used?  Is it from the STL?  Can you please provide me an example of how to use this?

Never heard of cast, actually C++ don't have it.
Instead C++ have static_cast, const_cast, dynamic_cast, reinterpret_cast.

The C++ style of casting is very safer than traditional C style casting.
Check those examples.
