The ANSI Standard
The ANSI stands for American National Standards Institute. This Institute was founded in 1918. The main goal for establishing this Institute was to suggest, reform, recommend, and publish standards for data processing in the USA. This committee sets up the standard in the computer industry.
The recognized council working under the procedure of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has made an international standard for C++. The C++ standard is also referred to as ISO (International Standards Organization) standard. The process of standardization is gradual and the first draft of the planned ANSI standard was made on 25 January 1994. This book will continue to refer ANSI standard code, which is more commonly used. The ANSI standard is an attempt to ensure that the C++ is portable.
