Abstract

A collection in the context of a computer language, intuitively, has the same meaning as a collection is meant in general. For instance, we may say a collection of books (usually to denote a number of books owned by someone or some organization, and possibly kept in the same bookcase or the same room). So a collection is really a few things of the same type or a similar type of object (numbers, strings, or some other type of objects could also be basic types in some language) taken together. The really important thing to know is why they deserve special mention/special handling in a computer language or computer language learning context.
