    STL error messages were invented by the Devil to punish C++ developers for the sins of all mankind.

    That's all. Thank you.

    They are indeed evil.

    However, I believe they're to punish C++ developers for using C++.

    You'd probably complain if it was really terse and didn't give enough information! :D They're easy once you get used to ignoring 90% of the message :p

    I actually managed to fix the problem pretty quickly, but not particularly thanks to the contents of the error messages. Line numbers were especially useless as those just pointed me to STL headers.

    Here is a particularly horrible example of an STL error message that I found on the web.

    If you think those messages are a punishment, try to use PC-Lint on your code... that'll make you cry like a little baby...
