Hi Peter,

I'm taking my second C++ class, where we regularly use < >, { }, and [ ] in
pairs. We call them by these names:

< > brackets
{ } curly brackets - and -
[ ] square brackets

When referring to only one of the brackets, we usually refer to < as an
opening bracket, } as closing curly bracket, etc. I have heard left and
right, too, but in code, the words opening and closing have more meaning.

Hope this helps,

Lisa Bronson
