C++ 2003 standard

P: n/a
It's too expensive for me to buy a copy of C++ 2003 standard. Are there
any legally free copy available for download?

Not really.

How much is "too expensive"?

It's $18 or so from ANSI. That's the cheapest legal answer you're
going to get. Nearly all of the legal copies have the original
purchasers name burned into each page of the PDF (mine doesn't
but it's a long story).

You can buy it from any bookstore in hardcover form for about $50-60.

Did you mean Microsoft Visual Studio? The "Express"-Edition
is free, AFAIK.

Other free C++ compilers are GNU C++, Borland C++ and
Watcom C++.

Here is a nice link:

No, he means ISO/IEC 14882:2003, the TC1 update to the Standard.
