It'll be several weeks before I can act on this, and probably several more before DTL starts to incorporate non-generic components, but I think a heads-up now might bear fruit down the line. If, over the next few weeks, anyone would care to check out components from STLSoft that they might like to see included in DTL, that'll help me gauge where to aim first. For example, I'm just completing the chapter (<advertainment> in my next book, Extended STL </advertainment>) on COM Enumerators, and it occurs to me that a D-version of the enumerator_sequence and collection_sequence classes might be very useful. There are lots of components in STLSoft, so I don't expect any kind of complete coverage. (Try and go for the low-hanging fruit if poss. <g>) A nice side effect of this for me would be if people were to give informed complaints about the docs. I mean, I know the docs are crap, but if people give specific complaints I will address each one, and that'll help me get STLSoft in a better state itself. Cheers Matthew
