libCat VS EA Standard Template Library

Compare libCat vs EA Standard Template Library and see what are their differences.


🐈‍⬛ A runtime for C++23 w/out libC or POSIX. Smaller binaries, only arena allocators, SIMD, stronger type safety than STL, and value-based errors! (by Cons-Cat)

EA Standard Template Library

EASTL stands for Electronic Arts Standard Template Library. It is an extensive and robust implementation that has an emphasis on high performance. (by electronicarts)

    C++, but generally treat it as C. STL is pretty slow while debugging so we avoid it and write our own replacements. If you don't want to drive that deep use something like EASTL:

    In my opinion, you should also benchmark it against something like boost::container::flat_set or eastl::vector_set and you should expect the same performance as with your ordered functionality. Another interesting idea for organization of such flat and sorted container can be found here.

    EASTL might also be worth a look, the code is relatively readable and well-documented.

    I just took a look at their atomic.h and wow, "well-documented" is an understatement !
  • should I just use C++ STL alternatives?

    I recently read this benchmark series about hashing and hashmaps, which includes EA STL. It performs fairly decently overall in that regard. EA STL also has benchmarks in its source repo. But I would also expect that some of its perfomance improvements are almost self evident, such as containers like tuple_vector, intrusive containers, and fixed-size containers that don't have an analogous feature in the STL, all of which are integrated into its own polymorphic allocators and arenas (different from and more flexible than std::pmr) along with its other algorithms. It would be interesting to see them benchmarked against Boost, which has similar features but written in the STL style.
  • EASTL atomic macro not implemented
    2 projects | /r/cpp_questions | 28 Jun 2022
    I'm currently trying to add EASTL to my project, but when I try to build it using CMake (either as a subdirectory, or directly in the EASTL subdirectory), I get the error message EASTL\include\EASTL\internal\atomic\atomic_integral.h(330,2): error C2338: static_assert failed: 'eastl::atomic atomic macro not implemented!'. Does anyone have any clue why this could be happening?

    I haven't, but that's a great idea! I did test it against the EASTL and that worked well and is still fast enough it appears instant.
  • Are you using Coding Interviews for Senior Software Developers?

    EA did it. Problem with "reliable containers" that go with your runtime is that you can't control if they cater to your specific use cases.
