What’s the difference between cladding and lining?

Please include one or two examples of each to help define the difference. Note that I also have only the vaguest idea what either cladding or lining is.

  • Lining is on the inside. Cladding is on the outside. A jacket is lined with insulating down. A house is clad in cedar shingles. A drain pipe can be lined with plastic to give it longer life. A gas pipe can be clad in plastic to give it longer life.
