MSVC++6 is pretty poor when it comes to the Std Library....

The book is called C++: Utilization of the Standard library.
Like the title says it deals with/focus on the standard library.
Im using MSVC++ 6.0 and it seems to want to do everything the hard way. I have managed to work around all the compiler complaints but now im at a point in the book where I needed to do all those things (explicit access and other things that i worked around) so i have to go back and do it the proper way.
Now that i think about it I laugh... I bought a book to learn the std lib and then had to try work around using it...gheesh.
Anyways what im looking for is a good compiler that won't whine like a banshee when using the oldschool.
