The library shipping with gcc is rather incomplete. There is work in
progess on a new implementation (see
<>) but as far as I can see this
is not yet in a usable state (ie. it produced lots of errors when I ran
my testsuite on it last time). For alternatives have a look at

- <> for a portable version of the SGI
  implementation (there is at least a beta version of the while thing)
- <> for SGI STL plus my
  implementation of stuff not implemented by SGI STL (eg. IOStreams)
- <> for the Dinkumware implementation.

The first two libraries are free, the latter is a commercial product
but it is reasonably priced for Linux, I think (well, the price of
STLport and my implementation is better :-)
