Table of Contents
This is stuff I've been using recently that I always seem to need to look at.

Microshaft vs. C++
- I'm getting really tired of all those darn warnings from
M$/Dinkumware's (Stinkumware) lousy implementation of STL. This

them yet, but will do in the future.

- The C++ FAQ
- Looks like this has gone "book".
- The C++ Virtual Library.

- I used to use Borland's compiler as it was better than
Microshaft's. Haven't touched it in many years, though.
Rich Hickey's Home Page (bad link last I checked)
- Home of the C++ callback library I use regularly. Actually,
ours is somewhat modified since we started using it before
Rich fixed it for VC++. I've archived the
original and the
new versions here just in case.
Rich's website appears to be gone. You can search for the
title of his article: "Callbacks in C++ Using Template
Functors" and read. Not sure if anyone is maintaining the
