Software News   Software News : STLport C++ library for OS4
   posted by ssolie on 23-Aug-2004 15:33:44 (2097 reads)
This is a complete port of STLport 4.6.2 for AmigaOS 4.0 which may interest C++ developers.

Just download the archive from OS4depot or Aminet, cd to the src/ subdirectory and type 'make -f gcc-amigaos.mak' to make the link libraries. Type 'make -f gcc-amigaos.mak install' to install STLport into the OS4 SDK ready for use.

I've also ported the exception handling test suite which is included along with a makefile. Finally, the debug version of STLport is also supported with the necessary link library for squashing those nasty C++ standard library usage bugs.

Note that this is a complete port including the native STLport iostreams which are enabled by default. I have not done any testing of the GCC iostreams wrapper functionality.

From my own testing, I've seen a few kbytes difference in size between C++ apps compiled with the GCC 3.4.1 C++ standard library versus STLport. STLport apps are slightly smaller and usually faster.

Well done!

I look forward to trying this out, when I get my AmigaOne. I plan to order it very soon, now that I've done with my examen.

Sorry for my stupidity, but what is STLport?
I understand that it's some (link-)library, maybe usefull for developers, but the homepage gives about zero information what kind of functions it includes?!
Could someone give me a short summary about STLport?

Ciao, Alfred

If you have to ask what STLport is you probably don't need it.

Some background in C++ is required to understand what is going on. The C++ programming language consists of two main parts. First, there is the C++ language itself which includes keywords, language constructs, etc. Second, there is the C++ Standard Library which contains hundreds of routines including containers, algorithms, locale, iostreams, complex numbers, etc. The C++ Standard Library also contains the C library.

STLport is meant to replace the C++ Standard Library included with your compiler by building upon the C library (in this case, clib2).

Note that the term "STL" is obsolete in modern C++. The Standard Template Library is only a portion of the entire C++ Standard Library. STLport refers to the entire C++ Standard Library despite its rather confusing name.
