Good documentation on C++ Base Clases?

I would like a URL to some online documentation for the C++ classes that come with the C++ compiler and libraries avialble on Linux.  I am looking for documentation on things like cin and cout and any collection type  classes.

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Walltham

I don't know about any specific GNU C++ library documentation, but it tries to follow the standard, so any good recent C++ book would do. Also you can get copies of old standard drafts on the net (or an electronic copy of the standard for about 20 bucks).

A good online reference to the standard C++ library is:

It talks about cin/cout, and also about STL, which has all the 'collection classes'.
Best URL I know about STL is by SGI

The URL given by xgiannak is good WRT the STL, however, the BEST C++ page I've run into (IME), is at the C++ Annotations at

I recommend this site to anyone doing anything with the language as it covers pretty much any and everything one needs to know about it.
