Migrating to the Standard C++ Library

Migrating to the Standard C++ Library  
ABSTRACT
 
In 1998 the ISO/ANSI standard for C++ and its standard library will eventually be finalized. The STL, a widely know template library, was incorporated into the standard. In the process of standardization it was enhanced and modified. Now that several early versions of the Standard C++ Library are available, programmers will consider migration from the STL to the Standard C++ Library. This lecture will introduce you to the major differences between the STL and the Standard Library. 
Additionally, the Standard C++ Library includes a stream I/O component that is modeled after the old IOStreams that is available since the first C++ compilers appeared on the market. We will discuss the differences between the old IOStreams and the new stream I/O component in the Standard C++ Library.
