All my tools (which are not primarily intended for Quake) are/will be
written in C++. I do not think, however, that I will use the STL.
From what I have seen, gcc-2.7.2 still has problems with STL, and
I consider UNIX (read: linux) and GCC (hopefully including DJGPP) my
base plattform. Is there any particular reason for your suggesting
STL? Haven't looked too closely, yet.
