libstdc++5-devel - Header files and libraries for C++ development… more info»
file: libstdc++-v3/README New users may wish to point their web browsers to the file documentation.html in the 'docs/html' subdirectory. It contains brief building instructions and notes on how to configure the library in interesting ways. Instructions for configuring and building appear in docs/html/install.html. This directory contains the files needed to create an ISO Standard C++ Library. It has subdirectories: docs Files in HTML and text format that document usage, quirks of the implementation, and contributor checklists. include All header files for the C++ library are within this directory, modulo specific runtime-related files that are in the libsupc++ directory. include/std Files meant to be found by #include <name> directives in standard-conforming user programs. include/c Headers intended to directly include standard C headers. [NB: this can be enabled via --enable-cheaders=c] include/c_std Headers intended to include standard C headers, and put select names into the std:: namespace. [NB: this is the default, and is the same as --enable-cheaders=c_std] include/c_shadow Headers intended to shadow standard C headers provided by an underlying OS or C library, and other headers depended on directly by C++ headers (e.g. unistd.h). These are meant to wrap the names defined there into the _C_legacy namespace. [NB: this can be enabled via --enable-cheaders=c_shadow] include/bits Files included by standard headers and by other files in the bits directory. include/backward Headers provided for backward compatibility, such as <iostream.h>. They are not used in this library. include/ext Headers that define extensions to the standard library. No standard header refers to any of them. src Files that are used in constructing the library, but are not installed. testsuites/[thread, 17_* to 27_*] Test programs are here, and may be used to begin to exercise the library. Support for "make check" and "make check-install" is complete, and runs through all the subdirectories here when this command is issued from the build directory. Please note that "make check" requires DejaGNU 1.4 or later to be installed. Please note that "make check-script" calls the script mkcheck, which requires bash, and which may need the paths to bash adjusted to work properly, as /bin/bash is assumed. Other subdirectories contain variant versions of certain files that are meant to be copied or linked by the configure script. Currently these are: config/cpu config/os config/io config/locale In addition, three subdirectories are convenience libraries: libio Contains the subset of the GNU libio library needed for C++. Currently not used. libmath Support routines needed for C++ math. Only needed if the underlying "C" implementation is non-existent, in particular required or optimal long double, long long, and C99 functionality. libsupc++ Contains the runtime library for C++, including exception handling and memory allocation and deallocation, RTTI, terminate handlers, etc. Note that glibc also has a bits/ subdirectory. We will either need to be careful not to collide with names in its bits/ directory; or rename bits to (e.g.) cppbits/. In files throughout the system, lines marked with an "XXX" indicate a bug or incompletely-implemented feature. Lines marked "XXX MT" indicate a place that may require attention for multi-thread safety.
