Are there snapshots of the changes made since then, or are those too unstable to call them snapshots? I'm trying to find some area of the library that I feel knowledgeable enough to contribute to that hasn't already been finished. > The most elegant way I know of to copy a file is > > OUT << IN.rdbuf(); Holy cow, I didn't even know there were extractors/inserters taking a streambuf* until now.... (I know, I know, I need to read that section of the IS more often; I keep getting bogged down in details.) As a recent graduate, what I really regret is that none of this is ever taught to students. I still see TAs handing out examples of source code that #define BOOLEAN int, "because C++ doesn't have a Boolean data type." We get wonderful theory, but little tools for practice. The vast majority of what I know of Standard C++ is self-taught from reading CD2. -- /dev/phil Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. firstname.lastname@example.org Advanced Systems & Technology Operations (937-320-4048)
