Newbie to C++ but i am a Java programmer. Trying to learn C++ now. Reading the C++ Primer by Stanley Lipmann.

I don't understand this sentence in Chapter 3 about library types. He's talking about library type string and vector.

"These library types are abstractions of more primitive types - arrays and pointers - that are part of the language"

Could it be he meant ..

"These library types are abstraction type rather than primitive types like arrays and pointers which are part of the language"?
