Neither of these links point to the C++ standard; they point to
references of implementations of the standard library. The official
standard can be found here:

downloadable versions:(pdf)
http://www.comnets.rwth-aachen.de/doc/c++std.html
or buy the 1998version $18
http://webstore.ansi.org/ansidocstor...C+14882%2D1998
or buy the very latest 2003version $273
http://webstore.ansi.org/ansidocstor...C+14882%3A2003

Online versions:(diff versions - latest first): all these are fairly similar

You might as well down load the STL:

I have a question.
Can anyone tell me why the latest c++ standard is so expensive($273) to buy?
Shouldn't it be free or very cheap?

That's 'cause access to ANSI docs is not free.

Actually I need freely available resource.

No, that's is because the URL got cut off. Add 2003 to the URL and it
should work.
Actually I need freely available resource.


Draft versions of the standard (pre 1998) can be downloaded freely, but
unfortunately I don't have a URL handy at this moment. Keep in mind
however that there are some differences between the draft standards and
the official version which may or may not be relevant to you. If you
want the offical one I'm afraid $18 is the closest legal alternative.

It costs money to maintain the ISO infrastructure for producing standards
and making them available.

The previous version of the C++ standard was available as a download for
$18. I suspect that it reduced sales of the more expensive printed
version enough that the ISO decided they needed to raise the price in
order to maintain revenues.
