C++ Standard Draft Sources
These are the sources used to generate drafts of the C++ standard. These sources should not be considered an ISO publication, nor should documents generated from them unless officially adopted by the C++ working group (ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG21).
- How to submit an editorial issue
- How to tell if an issue is editorial
- How to submit a new issue/defect report for non-editorial issues
More information about the C++ standard can be found at isocpp.org.
Getting Started on Mac OS X
Install the MacTeX distribution.
If you are on a slow network, you'll want to get the BasicTeX package instead, then run the following command to install the other packages that the draft requires:
sudo tlmgr install latexmk isodate substr relsize ulem fixme rsfs extract layouts enumitem
To typeset the draft document, from the
latexmk -pdf std
That's it! You should now have an
std.pdf containing the typeset draft.
If you can't use latexmk for some reason, you can use the Makefiles instead:
If you can't use latexmk or make for some reason, you can run LaTeX manually instead:
pdflatex stduntil there are no more changed labels or changed tables
makeindex -s basic.gst -o xrefindex.gls xrefindex.glo
pdflatex stdtwice more.
Generated input files
To regenerate figures from .dot files, run:
dot -o<pdfname> -Tpdf <dotfilename>
dot -ofigstreampos.pdf -Tpdf figstreampos.dot
A great deal of gratitude goes out to Pete Becker for his amazing work in the original conversion of the C++ standard drafts to LaTeX, and his subsequent maintenance of the standard drafts up to C++11. Thank you Pete.
Thanks to Walter Brown for suggesting the use of
