Happy to help. I highly recommend Alexandrescu's book too.
I'm beginning to wonder if there's enough interest in EoP on gdnet for some kind of informal study group...
So far I've been printing the newest set of notes from Stepanov's webpage, reading through it, trying things out in C++11 (where some features he asks for have been implemented properly) and waiting for EoP to arrive in the mailbox. A study group would indeed be a welcome addition! How would one go about setting that up?
I must say that so far I'm very impressed with Alex Stepanov's writings and to me the book seems like could well be the perfect step after just finishing Effective STL, which is another must have. I actually found out that I've already read a lot of Alexandrescu's book at work, and while it is good, Effective STL and Stepanov's notes so far have made a bigger impression on my way of dealing with structures and algorithms in C++.
