    what is the difference between class and structures ? (I assumed you meant by C++ structure and classes and not C struct and C++ class)

    In Class by default the members/methods are private where as in struct its by default public.

    2. what is top to bottom approach,bottom to top approach ?
    It is used for parsing of code and it represent the direction in which the code is parsed.

    The default inheritance is public for structures and private for classes.

    I knew I was missing the second point but could not recall on it.

    Here's another one:

    You can't use keyword struct in templates like template<struct T>

    Some people do not consider this as a difference. But anyways I felt like mentioning it.
