Where to find the C++ standard?

P: n/a
Is the C++ standard freely available? (I don't even really know what I
mean by that...) Does one have to pay through the nose to get a
watermarked PDF from the ISO publishers?
Thanks for your help.

Regarding final standard: yes, but that's illegal in many (all?) countries.

You can however obtain the CD2 (Committee Draft 2, last draft before
finalization of the 1998 standard) freely and legally, e.g. from Bjarne
Stroustrup's home pages.

Does one have to pay through the nose to get a watermarked PDF from the
ISO publishers?
No, it's just $15 or something like that, but some folks (e.g. me... ;-) )
are so contrary that they refuse to pay even a "handling charge" like that.

Thanks for your help.


You're welcome.

You can download your own .pdf copy of the latest 2003 revision from,
for example, webstore.ansi.org (search for INCITS/ISO/IEC 14882-2003)
for $18US.

You don't even have to search right now. It's on the front page.
