The C++ standard draft includes the spec for Standard Template Library (STL) which gets you pretty much any collection you need in C++. Check out the C++ faq (somewhere under ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/...) for where to find it. If you're using GNU C++ 2.6.3 (or a more recent snapshot), the hacked version of STL that comes with libg++-2.6.2 (or w/today's 2.6.9 snapshot) is quite usable. ObjectSpace and Modena are two vendors selling STL implementations that cover a wide variety of compiler/platform combos (email@example.com, 1-800-MODENA-1 for more info). Also welcome to take a look at my STL newbie file (http://www.xraylith.wisc.edu/~khan/ and follow the 'STL Newbie doc' link). If you're using Borland 4.5 on a PC, you can use the HP implementation from ftp://butler.hpl.hp.com/stl.
Here's a snippet from FAQ:
STL HP official site: ftp://butler.hpl.hp.com/stl STL code alternate: ftp://ftp.cs.rpi.edu/stl STL code + examples: http://www.cs.rpi.edu/~musser/stl.html hacks for GCC-2.6.3: ftp://ftp.uni-bremen.de/pub/.mount/ruin/C++/STL
btw, c.l.c++ is the group you should watch for this type of info.
