Subject: [boost] [OT] CPH (Copenhagen) STL

I have no connection to the CPH STL project, but I have spent several
hours looking over their technical reports, and a number of them are
quite interesting. They detail research into different implementation
choices for the STL containers and some of the algorithms, and have
benchmarks, practical implementation notes, etc. Many of the reports
even include full source code in the appendices.

For example, I recommend looking at:
2004-2 - Mads D. Kristensen: Vector implementation for the CPH STL

Even though these are academic in nature, unlike most papers about data
structures which I've read, they deal explicitly with the issues
associated with actually creating STL-compatible containers (with the
associated iterators).

This seems to be an active project, with work ongoing through this year.
There is also some source code posted, although I was not able to find
any licensing details.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable holiday season!
