Have you tried STLport ( www.stlport.org ) or you are saying STLport is not supported ( and BTW STLport project is free ) ?

If you have not tried STLport - that was your and only your descision to reinvent the wheel. > These people (the developers) won't get paid, they won't get any fame Some are paid and some get quite a bit of fame only because they are participating in something called 'free software'. Some are not only payed, but also get a lot of fame. There are many different kinds and reasons why people are participating in 'free' software. > So you asked, "Are you asking too much"? > > Unless you want to pay these developers...then yes, you are asking too > much.

I see. So now there are some brand new holy cows over there, called 'free' software. ( To me - software is either good, or bad. No matter is it 'free' or 'not' ). Somehow you are participating in some marketing-driven attempt to re-animate some heap of code produced by fulltime developers who have left some company long time ago. This is your and only your descision. I don't understand why now nobody can even *touch* that monster. Nobody is critisizing you.
