Understanding Small String Optimization (SSO) in std::string

In the world of C++ programming, efficient memory management is crucial for optimal performance. One fascinating feature that many modern implementations of std::string offer is Small String Optimization (SSO). This clever optimization can significantly enhance the performance of string operations by minimizing heap allocations for small strings. Let’s dive into what SSO is, how it works, and why it matters.
