This template class is a custom duplication of the Standard Template Library (STL) stack class. Whether you like building your own data structures, you simply do not like to use any inbuilt functions, opting to build everything yourself, or your homework requires you make your own data structure, this sample code is really useful. I feel its beneficial building functions such as this, that way you better understand the behind the scene processes.

The highlighted lines are sections of interest to look out for.

The code is heavily commented, so no further insight is necessary. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below.


Use of the above template class is the same as its STL counterpart. Here is a sample program demonstrating its use.

Once compiled, you should get this as your output

charStack has 31 items in it
and contains the text "My Programming Notes Is Awesome" backwards:
emosewA sI setoN gnimmargorP yM

intStack has 9 items in it.
The sum of the numbers in the stack is: 2145

floatStack has 10 items in it.
The sum of the numbers in the stack is: 286.717
