This library implements most of the standard C++ library with the goal of minimizing code size of client applications, achieving this goal by factoring out memory management code from the STL container templates into untyped memory block operations and modifying the templates to act only as a type-safety layer. Compared with the SGI STL implementation, shipped with gcc, using this library can reduce C++ overhead by a factor of four.
