Hi all

Just a bit of shameless self-promotion to let y'all know that "Extended STL,
Volume 1: Collections and Iterators" is finally published and available.
Featuring 53 chapters (+ 3 extra chapters on the CD), it's a full tour of
the perils, pitfalls, pleasures and peaks of STL extension, covering
adaptation of operating system/3rd-party library APIs, and various facets of
iterator adaptation, on top of a whole lot of pertinent foundational
material.

Check out the website (http://www.extendedstl.com/), or just go straight to
Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Extended-STL-1-Matthew-Wilson/dp/0321305507/)
and buy it if you trust me. ;-)

The reviews so far have been pretty favourable - see
http://www.extendedstl.com/reviews.html

I'm pretty busy with "real work" for the rest of this year, so the next two
books - Breaking Up The Monolith (2008) and Extended STL, Volume 2 (2009) -
will have to wait awhile.

Best wishes to all

Matt

Congratulations on this one! I already ordered it from the local bookstore and now I'm (busy and curious) waiting on its arrival... With IC++ I had a nice summer, so when your book arrves the sun will probably start to shine again over here ;-) (see http://www.eld.physics.leidenuniv.nl/~moene/icpp/).

Even though, we hope to see some signs of the imaginative life over here. And that's that. Martin.
