class libraries

I was told many c++ compilers are starting to come with various class libraries to do many common tasks such as stacks, queues, and such.  How do I use these?  Or where do I find more info on it, and what are they called.  If my compiler doesn't come with these can you recomend a good site that would contain such utilities?

Yes, actually the new C++ standard defines such a library, which is called the STL (standard Template Library). I think most new compilers will contain some version of it (I know Borland C++ 5.0 does). A popular version is the one of Rogue Wave (which is also included in BC5.0). You should be able to purchase it seperately (it's not for free:).
If you're not requiring the STL, but are happy with just some library code for the most common stuff, I'm sure you're able to find something on the web. Or try a search on STL.
