Hello experts,
I used to program in Java, and now i am doing c++ programming. I have the following code
typedef vector<string> my_vec;

void read(const char* fileName, my_vec& my_vec)

Here i do not understand why it does not directly use std::vector for function read()? I tried this
void read(const char* fileName, vector& my_vec)
It gave me a compile error. Could anyone explain why?
