    Standard Library

    Good Day.

    I have been studying C++ for 6 months. Im moving along quite well, however, Ive picked up a book that is helping me a great deal with a few of the things that I have been struggling with and Ive run across another problem.
    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.

    thankx

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

    You can download DevC++ from www.bloodshed.net for free......The most recent download is very up to date and seems to be able to handle almost everything you throw at it
