Along with what Paul explains you can check the library documentation
page at for the C++ minimum mode a
library supports. Library are free to support some of their
functionality above their C++ minimum and should document the fact if
they do. Libraries which have no "C++ Standard Minimum Level" field in
the documentation page have chosen not to officially support a C++
minimum level for that library, although this usually means that the
library supports C++03 and above.
