Queue vs Cue - morfizm

Dec. 11th, 2015 04:51 pm Queue vs Cue

"Queue is rare in American English. And when American writers use it, it’s sometimes spelled cue—for example..."

ROFL.
Wrong!
It's cue that's rare in American English. We misspell cue as queue! ;)

Cpp standard says std::queue. Therefore alternate spellings must be either incorrect or implementation specific definitions of some other classes.
