Does anyone know of web pages that give *accurate* descriptions of the
concepts used in the C++ Standard Library (e.g., Input Iterator, etc.)?
The SGI STL web pages won't do, as the information they give is wrong --
it does not match what the Standard says. For example, the Standard does
not require Input Iterators to be default constructible, whereas the the
SGI STL web site gives default constructibility as a requirement
(indirectly, through TrivialIterator). I already have a copy of the
Standard; what I'm looking for is some nice web pages defining the
concepts, so that I can use them in the generic programming class I'm
teaching and in online documentation of my own.

On a related topic, there are a number of new concepts defined for various
Boost libraries. Is there any single page on the Boost web site that has
links to all of the Boost concepts pages? I've looked and haven't found
one, but I could have missed it.
