STLplus is a collection of reusable C++ components for developers already familiar with the STL. It contains template containers to extend the STL, reusable subsystems, data persistence (serialisation) and portability components.

The collection is general-purpose and portable:

Contents of the STLplus Library

The STLplus library contains the following components:

Obtaining the Software

There are three key packages in the project:

the source code for Version 3 (stable) of the STLplus C++ library
the source code for Version 2 (stable, deprecated) of the STLplus C++ library
the makefiles used to build the library if you are using the Gnu compiler

You have a choice of either downloading a zipped file containing the source code for the library or accessing the CVS repository. The download option gives you the easiest access but only provides released snapshots of the library. The CVS option gives you access to the latest version but you need to have an understanding of CVS.

The collection does not depend on any other software apart from the C and C++ standard libraries.

Note for CVS users: each of these has a corresponding module with the same name in the CVS repository.

STLplus v3 is a library collection, where each library serves a specific purpose, so you can pick which libraries in the collection to use. STLplus v3 is now the recommended version and use of v2 is deprecated.

The makefiles project is a s set of generic make rules for building the STLplus libraries with gcc which can also be used to make other projects.
