Thanks, I'll try to get something. However as far as I can see, the last 
time it was included, the libgpp rpm was built from the gcc source rpm (in 
addition to gcc), so this may not work.

Since I might have to rewrite a lot, do you (or anybody else on this list)
accidentally know any good introductory C++ book that gives a decent
description on how to work with strings (in a way that won't be obsolete
soon ;-) ?  I mean, for somebody who has done some programming, but does
not have much C++ knowledge?

Alternatively, are there good web resources?

Thanks a lot & kind regards, Andreas
