Of course these are valid questions. The situation I was in was such that I
was extracting code for my Windows projects into libraries to be used on Linux
as well. Extensive ifdefs became necessary and I looked to stlport for the
solution. After having to wait till RC8(I think) to get the iostream
implementation to build on RH6.2/Mandrake 7.0, I finally got my USING_STLPORT
build to compile. It crashed soon after startup, but works fine with the gcc
2.95.2 shipped lib. As I was under the gun on my project and I can't stand
trying to work with gdb, I told those using my code to stick to the shipped
libs for now.

The fact that Boris is the only one responding (tersely and infrequently) to
questions in the forum made tracking things down more difficult.

Thanks for letting me know that you've used it extensively, perhaps I will try
it out again on my next project which will be cross platform.
