I use mainly two publicly available documentation sources :

- the STL manual at SGI

  I cross compare with the doxygen generated doc at gnu matching my gcc
  snapshot :

- and for the io library I use a local copy of the old documentation from gnu
  that you can still find mirrored here and there with google by looking for
  "Reference Manual for libio", it will lead you to places such as :

  the debian distribution ships the STL doc from sgi with the package named
  'stl-manual', I don't know for other distributions.

At last, not a reference book but rather for a general presentation and a
collection of tips there is "thinking in C++" by Bruce Eckel available here :
