C++ FAQ Celebrating Twenty-One Years of the C++ FAQ!!!
(Click here for a personal note from Marshall Cline.)
Section 37:
[37.9] Where can I get tons and tons of more information on C++ class libraries?

Three places you should check (not necessarily in this order):

  • The C++ Libraries FAQ is maintained by Nikki Locke and is available with frames and without frames.
  • Also you should check out www.mathtools.net/C_C__/. They have a good pile of stuff organized into (at present) sixty-some categories.
  • Also you should check out www.boost.org/. They have some wonderful stuff, some of which will get proposed for standardization the next time around.

Important: none of these lists are exhaustive. If you are looking for some particular functionality that you don't find above, try a Web search such as Google. Also, don't forget to help out the next person via the Submission Form in the C++ Libraries FAQ.
