This text was created to provide C++ programmers with a suite of reusable programs, or lines of code, that could be used by everyone to increase programming productivity and quality. Every C++ programmer will need at least one off-the-shelf STL reference guide. Each chapter covers one STL component, and includes background, a review of the standard, using the component, implementing the component, and exercises.
Background. Functional Description. Using STL. Implementing STL. Testing STL. Exercises.
With the ANSI/ISO C++ Standard Template Library (STL), C++ developers have a powerful toolset for maximizing productivity, software quality, and performance at the same time. STL provides both comprehensive sets of container classes and fundamental algorithms to go with them-a large, systematic, and efficient framework for C++ development. Now, in this long-awaited book, the creators of the C++ Standard Template Library explain it authoritatively and in depth. Each chapter of The C++ Standard Template Library covers one STL component, including:
Appendices present lists of reserved names, a detailed glossary of terms and references, and how STL interfaces with the rest of the Standard C++ library.
Fully reflective of the final ANSI/ISO STL standard, The C++ Standard Template Library is the last word on all aspects of STL development for every experienced C++ programmer.
P.J. Plauger is President of Dinkumware, Ltd., which licenses standards-conforming C and C++ libraries and documentation. For many years, he served as Senior Editor of The C/C++ Users Journal and Contributing Editor to Embedded Systems Programming. Plauger has long been active in the development of C and C++ international standards.
Alex Stepanov, now at AT&T, formerly headed the Generic Programming Project at Hewlett-Packard Research Laboratories in Palo Alto, California.
Meng Lee is currently a Technical Contributor at Hewlett-Packard Research Labs where she and Stepanov developed the original STL. The STL was proposed to and accepted by the ANCI/ISO C++ Standards Committee.
David R. Musser, Professor of Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, specializes in research on generic programming. His work with Stepanov provided the foundation for the STL.
