What are the differences between a struct and a class in C++?..

Answer / rsn

Hello Shivani,

I think both struct and class in C++ are quite the same
except for the fact that, members in struct are public by
default whereas they are private for class.
Moreover struct also supports inheritance,polymorphism
etc...etc...

In structures by default the member variables considered as
public where as in classes by default data members are

What are the differences between a struct and a class in C++?..

Answer / shivani

In Class Members are private by default.
In Structure Member are public by default.
structures are value typed where as classes are refernce
typed

Class can be inherited But Structure can't be inherited

In structures we cannot initilase the variable during the
declaration while in classes we can.

Structure s does not support polymorphism while class does

Structure can be declared without a tag at the first time,
but not in case of class.

e.g. struct { variables; }(struct variable list); [It would
not raise any error while comlitation]

class { access specifier: variable list; access specifier:
vari....

}; [it will cause an error while compilation]
