i have heard this many times ...... " About Reinveting The Wheel "
dont use linklists and arrays , insted use the STL
dont try to build an Operating System it will never be widely accepted ( which is true of course)
but isnt creating your own datastructures an excellent programming practice. i have read that one way of using the STL is to enhance it. the only way i know i can enhance it is by getting a good working knowledge of basic data structures and only way i can do that is by creating my own.
lets see what u guys have to say about it .......
