what riverace.com had to offer (it's mentioned a lot in the introduction). 
There I found references to 3 ACE books, and then a reference to Mattthew's 
review of C++NPv2 in CUJ.

Now, knowing he just got out of an ACE-heavy project, I'm left wondering... 
how did using it meet the expectations expressed in the review? And what's 
the reason behind ACEStl?

Cool. That'll make 3 of us, then. :-)

I like ACE, and we found it very useful. It's not what I would term the best C++ I've ever seen, by any means, but as a library it's top notch. I'm hoping to give feedback to the ACE team as soon as I have some free time. There were several confusing/misleading things in the 3 books, but once we'd got past them, we came up with a really powerful architecture, which has so far proven exceptionally reliable.
 And what's the reason behind ACEStl?

Because there were lots of things that I needed that're not present in ACE, and which are now present in ACESTL, including: - Custom event handling - now provided in acestl::custom_event_handler - linear byte-wise enumeration of the contents of a message queue - now provided in acestl::message_queue_sequence and quite a few utility functions, for ACE_Message_Block, sockets, time strings, string access, etc. Since I'm only now hours away from STLSoft 1.8.3b1, you'll be able to have an (as yet undocumented) play with them very soon. :-) Cheers Matthew
