    Offline C++ documentation

    I looked, but haven't been able to find downloadable C++ library documentation (preferably in HTML and/or man page format). Since I spend a lot of time offline, online resources like cppreference.com won't help me too much.I've saved many cppreference.com pages, but it isn't the same. I also tried installing the libstdc++6-4.3.-doc package, but that just seems to have developer documentation, not API reference.

    Is there any C++ documentation (particularly for the STL) that I can download? Thanks.

    For STL I usually turn here:

    Standard Template Library Programmer's Guide

    It's an HTML tree, but a simple one that saves well for offline viewing.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    GNU[/URL]]There are two types of documentation for libstdc++-v3. One is the distribution documentation, which can be read online at http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/libstd...mentation.html or offline from docs/html/documentation.html in the library source directory.
    Something like this maybe? Looks like you'd have to dl the source to get it, but it claims to be there.
