Hello, I am looking for a Usenet group which discusses compiling with the Intel C++ compiler on Windows using MSVC ver. 6 as a backend together with the STLPort standard library. There is a forum on the Intel website, but I am having some login problems. Also, there is a forum on sourceforge devoted to STLPort. However, the combination ICL/STLPort doesn't seem too popular, although I think it has great potential. Has anyone reading here worked with this combination of compiler/STL on Windows before? I did my early Windows programming with the OpenWatcom compiler together with STLPort 3.1 (I believe). But you can download Visual C++ version 8 for free and when you download the SDK along with it you have all you need to program Windows applications.
