There is a universe of excellent libraries. However, I did not expect to
see them resommended on this newsgroup.
IMHO the standard libraries are rather perverse when used for programs to be
run on multi-processor machines - which many people own today. Naive use of
the STL containers, in particular, causes a multithreaded program to run
slower on multi-processor machines.
I would like to see BOOST begin to address this issue, hence my post.
