Well, you've got stlport installed, that's good. DMC's default STL
implementation is very old, I think it pre-dates the standard. So they
provide stlport, which is a much better implementation.

I think the prebuilt version from the Digital Mars website has a
slightly different setup to the default setup so it doesn't work very
well with the dmc-stlport tool. If I remember correctly there were some
link problems.

To get it working I did something a little dodgy. The attached toolset
will use dmc without any flags for the standard libraries. So, if you
setup Digital Mars to use stlport (you should find instructions at
c:\dm\stlport\readme.txt) by default it will work. At least, that's what
I was doing. Sorry, that's not a great solution.
