Subject Re: Using STL (Was: Exception model (more thoughts))
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2005 17:10:47 GMT
I think it is worth taking a closer look at this issue, because using the 
STL (standard C++, really) can make the code less buggy (because you worry 
less about pointers), easier to understand (for C++ programmers) and more 
compatible with existing C++ code.

What platforms have problems and what are those problems?
How does using STL only within get around those problems (the code still 
needs to be compiled)?

I don't mean to cause trouble, I truly want to understand this problem. C++ 
has come a long way and I think Axis-C++ can benefit from that.

As far as I know, some platorms have problems with STL, hence we use
STL only within.
