C++ Libraries - Where to find a list ?

Recommended Posts

Poigahn    598

As I am transfering from a language that seems to encompass most everything I was coding, and moving more into learning C++, with the aide of several books, I find that they are lacking alot of imformation.

 

1 A certain piece of information is how many Libraries are there to C++ ?  Seems to be missing !!

 

2 Where can I find a list of these #include <thisifyouwanttodothat> and what those libraries do?

The first place to start is the Standard C++ Library, sometimes (erroneously) referred to as the STL*. This contains lots of libraries relating to containers (lists, arrays, vectors, etc), strings (not a part of the language, but a library) and various other stuff (input/output streams, algorithms, etc).

+1 for linking to en.cppreference instead of cplusplus.com. @OP Don't use cplusplus.com for a reference on the standard library (for one, it's not official documentation).

 

Also, OP, if you're looking for a particular library for C++ that does something the standard library (or even boost) doesn't offer, e.g. a rendering library, then google it. Google is your friend, you could also try to look on GitHub or BitBucket if you can't find it on google or another search engine.

I Thank each of you for your input.  I found The Information referenced and was able to find several answers to my questions at these locations.

There was several items That I was looking for but was looking in the wrong catagories.  Several post by others whom were searching for the same answers to the same questions I had,   accelerated my search!

 

Your feedback and quick responses is the main reason I joined this Forum.  Keep up the good work!!

I will do my best to give back as much, if not more, help to others.
