    information on libraries

    hi,

    Checked out the faq coz it sounds like a comman question but i havent seen anyone else ask it.

    here goes!

    Where can i found on the internet a site with a decent description on all of the libraries on offer. So far i have only used

    <iostream>
    <iomanip>
    <stdlib.h>

    and i think i could be a lot more creative with my programs if i had some good information on other libraries out there .

    I use Microsoft VSC++ if that makes any difference.

    Any help appreciated . Thanks

    You can find a pretty good description of the standard headers at www.cplusplus.com and a good STL (Standard Template Library) reference at the SGI website (www.sgi.com). I don't recall the exact location on the SGI website, but it is easily accessible from the main page.

    Thanks Zach,

    that cplusplus.com link was just the kind of thing i was looking for.

    Just out of interest can anyone tell me how complete this list of library functions is ? (the first link Zach .L provided)

    Is this list just the tip of the iceberg?

    Are there any other good links on this subject that can help me?

    Thanks.

    The cplusplus.com is a fairly complete reference on those libraries that it covers. The link to the STL portion of the SGI website is (http://www.sgi.com/tech/stl/) if you still need that link.

    > Is this list just the tip of the iceberg? <
    That depends on what you mean. What I gave you are some references on fairly standard libraries although there are many third-party libraries that you can also use. Some other examples of libaries are (although possibly not applicable to your specific programs) http://www.acl.lanl.gov/pooma/ and http://oonumerics.org/blitz/.

    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Tyrael, please shorten the signature. A link to the essay is fine, or maybe (AT MAX, a paragraph from it). But when 4/5 of the screenspace from your posts are from your signature, it's highly annoying.
