The C++ Standard Library project has been ported to the following
compilers and operating systems:

Como 4.2.4 through 4.3.3 on Solaris 7 through 9 (SPARC)
Compaq C++ 6.3 through 6.5 on Tru64 UNIX (Alpha)
EDG eccp 2.45.2 through 3.5 on Solaris 7 through 9 (SPARC) and
Linux (x86)
gcc 2.95.2 through 3.4.3 on HP-UX, Linux (x86, x86_64, IA64),
Solaris 7 through 10 (x86, SPARC), as well as Cygwin and Interix
HP aCC 3.33 through 3.63 on HP-UX 11.00 through 11.23 (PA-RISC)
HP aCC 5.50 through 6.01 on HP-UX 11.22 through 11.23 (IPF)
IBM VisualAge C++ 5.0 through 7.0 on AIX and Linux (PowerPC)
Intel C++ 7.0 through 8.1 on Linux and Windows (x86, x86_64, IA64)
MIPSpro 7.3 through 7.4 on IRIX64 (MIPS)
MSVC 6.0 through 7.1 on Windows (x86, x86_64, IA64)
SunPro 5.3 through 5.7 on Solaris 6 through 10 (x86, x86_64, SPARC)

Ports to other platforms such MVS, OS/390, Siemens Reliant/CDS++,
VMS, and z/OS have also been done, although they are not being
maintained on the development branch.

The tarball that's on our Web page(*) is a snapshot of the
development branch tested at the time on most (although not
all) of the platforms above.
