I've got to go with Robert here.
I just wrote a bunch of python code and used libraries to
        parse URLs,
        generate HTML,
        talk to MySQL,
        write CGI handlers,
        handle exceptions,
        parse MIME messages,
        generate XML (off the top of my head).

Where are the modern C++ versions (good generic interfaces, well tested, source code available) of libraries to perform these tasks?
More libraries, please.
