What is the difference between size_t and size_type? size_type seems to be related closely with the C++ Standard String Class. Couldn't they have just used size_t instead? I don't understand the difference. Could anyone elaborate please?
Say, MolsaicFuneral! I've got it about half working modifying my String Class to save the string length in a member variable, instead of constantly calling strlen(), and it looks like something like a 90 to 95% improvement in speed! Can't believe I didn't think of that myhself, its so basic. I've more work to do with it yet though.
