You should really post this question on the STLport forum
(, since it is not boost-related.


IMO The STLport I/O library is quite stable BTW.

Subject: [boost] STLPort I/O Library

Hi all.

I recently started using STLPort instead of the MS-Stl for reasons of

I am very happy with the performance and stability of STLPort but during
the modification of some of my code to work with it i encountered some
problem regarding the sgi I/O library. It is documented that the library
is still experimental - .

I can work without the SGI I/O library but for example instead of
including <istream> the STLPort wrapper will direct the compiler to
<iostream.h> instead and thus I will have to give up all the template
I/O library.

So my questions are:

1. Is the I/O library stable by now?
2. If it isn't stable yet is there any way to work with the MS-STL?
3. If it is stable is there some documentation of the library?
(Because in SGI STL there is no real one about I/O library)
