Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Kind of tough
He's my new boss and directs my day by day activities.
He's also the new systems designer now that I've been judged incompetent.

Note: I've been reading "Data Structures with STL".

Decent book. Some stupid typoes, wordos (love it when someone adds a mispelled word to the spellcheck software), and typset-softwaros though.

Done a bunch of examples, and am getting a bit more comfortable with C++.

While the Perl->C drop in productivity would be about 100 to 1, Perl->C++/STL will be about 20 to 1.
New He's definitely not qualified
Hope you're not paying him too much.

New C++ with STL isn't bad
but can be VERY wordy....and const can drive you crazy.

There are 2 other books, I'd recommend
[link|http://www.amazon.com/C%2b%2b-Standard-Library-Tutorial-Reference/dp/0201379260/sr=1-1/qid=1158270515/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-4268238-1448904?ie=UTF8&s=books|http://www.amazon.co...4?ie=UTF8&s=books]
and [link|http://www.amazon.com/STL-Tutorial-Reference-Guide-Programming/dp/0201379236/sr=1-3/qid=1158270515/ref=pd_bbs_3/102-4268238-1448904?ie=UTF8&s=books|http://www.amazon.co...4?ie=UTF8&s=books]

But, C++ with STL allows most of the data constructs that PERL allows (just not the RE and modules. <sigh>)
New No it doesn't

Or if it did, it is so damn picky and wordy and painful to get from point A to point B it is just not worth it.

Note: Boost libs have REGEXP but it pretty much sucks. At least a dozen lines of error prone C++ code for every line of Perl code.

<sigh back>

Ahh, screw it. I'll do the best I can until something better comes along.
New STL is insane.
What a POS. Picky, wordy, finicky... everything you don't want in a library that's supposed to make things easier to do.

New I am rather amused
at how the C++ world has latched onto extensive use of templates to get a primitive form of duck typing - even though they insist that duck typing is dangerous and error prone.
