c++.stl.port - STLport 4.6.2 and DMC status
I've been working on getting STLport 4.6.2 up and running, in between conference travel and other various life experiences. It's pretty close to being ready for general use; I've been hammering out some of the test cases in the test\regression directory. So far, I can report that the various non-debug and -DDEBUG flavors of the STLport library/code work. There is a problem with the -D_STLP_DEBUG (STLport debug) flavor, but it's pretty apparent that few, if any, people actually use the -D_STLP_DEBUG version of the library. If they do, they clearly don't use maps, sets or anything that relies on the red/black tree structures. Also, it's pretty apparent that few people use the DLL version of STLport. I'm off on travel to a conference at MIT Lincoln Labs until next Friday. After that, I put up a web page with an initial patch set for users to test. Be forewarned: STLport is VERY SENSITIVE to having the right compiler flags set on the command line. For example, if you want to use the DLL, you MUST add "-D_STLP_USE_DYNAMIC_LIB" to your compiler flags or you will get an access violation. I will document the required compiler flags. I will not be sympathetic to "my program crashses" complaints when the flags aren't properly set. -scooter

Thanks for working on this scooter, I am sure the community will LOVE you for it. You might want to send the changes to STLport so that they can incorporate it into the STLPort 5.0 Beta...

STLport 4.6.2 is now available at http://mordred.cs.ucla.edu/STLport_DMC/ If you have a lot of time on your hands and a fast machine, you can build the regression tests in test\regression: smake /f dm.mak clean smake /f dm.mak smake /f dm_indiv.mak clean smake /f dm_inidiv.mak The regression tests also serve as good code examples. I've built all of the tests, unconvered two compiler issues, but overall, the tests WORK for the -DDEBUG and release versions of the STLport libraries. Use -D_STLP_DEBUG ("STLport debug") at your own risk. -scooter

Thanks for doing all this great work!

ZIP file has been updated so that the root is "STLport" instead of "/scottm/play/...". Sorry for the inconvenience and confusion. -scooter
