Question
what are interfaces and STL

Answer
surinder, Thank you for your question.

An Interface is a class with pure virtual functions. Such a class must be used as a base class for a derived class, since a pure virtual class cannot be instantiated (its actual function definitions are unknown).

In COM, an Interface is the methods declaration for a class contained in a COM object.

STL is the Standard Template Library. It contains template classes to manipulate strings, lists, etc.
