The C++ Standard Template Library

Current Version: 1.0a
The C++ Standard Template Library (STL) is a set of powerful tools which can dramatically increase productivity and software reliability. This course teaches the C++ programmer how to make effective use of the STL, by describing the tools that are available and their abilities, and giving tips and examples on how to incorporate them into programs and projects. Aditionally, students are taught how to design new STL-like tools for situations where existing components are inadequate.

A sound knowledge of C++ is essential, including familiarity with templates and operator overloading. A reasonably comprehensive C++ course should be a provide sufficient background, providing the student has previous programming experience.
