I am relatively new to Unix programming and have been given a small program to write in order to get my feet wet. I am having a problem with both the compiler and the version of STL that is on this system. I’m working under AIX with the IBM xlC ver 3.6.4 compiler. The problem with the compiler is that I can’t get certain C++ constructs working that I have always used, s.a. the bool type, and the namespace construct. Also the version of STL on the system is a restricted version, which is missing certain elements s.a. the string type. Can anybody tell me where I can get a more ANSI compliant C++ compiler and a better version of the STL for this compiler? It must have fairly complete installation instructions since I have limited experience in AIX, that is I need the idiot's guide to installation.
Thanks for any help
