Hot Stuff

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

C++ Reference
M$ Developer's Network


C++ Reference
A wonderful C++ reference that I've contributed to.
Boost C++ Libraries
Proving ground for future library standards.
Microshaft vs. C++
I'm getting really tired of all those darn warnings from M$/Dinkumware's (Stinkumware) lousy implementation of STL. This page has a few techniques for getting around the problems including a free drop-in STL replacement. Haven't tried them yet, but will do in the future.
Bjarne Stroustrup
The C++ FAQ
Looks like this has gone "book".
The C++ Virtual Library.
Looks really outdated.
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 library, though.

Microshaft Windoze

M$ Developer's Network
Microshaft's official source for programming info.
Dump those debug messages to the screen even if you don't have Visual C++ installed.
