Techopedia Explains VectorVectors are primarily used within the programming context of most programming languages and serve as data structure containers. Being a data structure, vectors are used for storing objects and collections of objects in an organized structure.
The major difference between and array and a vector is that, unlike typical arrays, the container size of a vector can be easily increased and decreased to complement different data storage types. Vectors have a dynamic structure and provide the ability to assign container size up front and enable allocation of memory space quickly. Vectors can be thought of as dynamic arrays.
