QuoteIf I was hiring C++ developers, I would quiz them on "STL tricks" and if they passed with flying colours and were proud of their answers, their CVs would go straight to the bin.There are severals reasons for this mindset 1. "Not Invented Here" syndrome. New graduates can suffer from this ailment. They still think CS is blue sky research.2. STL's syntax can be cryptic yes, but effort ... learn another programming paradigm upon which STL is based 3. You have not been immersed in Fortran, NAG, IMSL libraries. aka REUSE.4. If it were a fixed-point project and you were tendering then your tune would change. You would either 1) not get selected or 2) run out of funds very early. 5. You have not understood enough of STL to give a measured opinion "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing". 6. We will be left wth non-standard legacy code to be maintained.If I were your cost control manager I would be very worried. QuoteFeel free to post an example of actual production code where the use of an "STL trick" gave a measurable performance gain, or actually made the code more readable. NDA old bean
