Not sure what you mean....

There are not "many basic types of c++", there is in fact only one standard


Maybe what you mean is there are various different C++ compilers around ?

In an ideal world, all compilers would implement the standard in exactly the 
same way, so C++ that compiles and  runs with one compiler would do so with 
all others.

Life isn't anywhere near as simple.

In fact, code that compiles withone version of gcc (http://gcc.gnu.org/), the 
default compiler that comes with basically any linux platform, may not work 
with another version out the box.
