I am currently reading a book called "Accelerated C++ Practical Programming by Example" by Andrew Koenig and Barbara E. Moo and am confused on the difference between a string and a string literal.

Here is the excerpt from what I read:

The second new idea is that we can use + to concatenate a string and a string literal--or, for that matter, two strings (but not two string literals).

EDIT:
I am thinking concatenating two strings would be like:

string test = firstName + lastName;

and two string literals would be like:

string literals = "i am a " + "string literal"

not sure if I am right, but I figure its better to find the answer other than guess and found out later you're wrong. Posted Image
