This is a follow up from an earlier post...didn't want to hijack it so started another. In that post it was said that structs (C++) are the same as classes except that all members (methods and variables) are public. Does this mean that structs support instansiation/constructors/destructors/inhertience/polymorphism etc as classes do?

Yes. Also, they support private and protected access levels, but the default is public (unlike C++ classes, whose default access level is private).

The public/private defaults also apply to base classes:

struct Foo {};
struct Bar {};

struct Quux1 : Foo, private Bar {}; // Quux1 and Quux2
class Quux2 : public Foo, Bar {}; // are identical.
