    Re-vamped MSDN

    I'm trying to find the MSDN description pages for upper_bound() and lower_bound() but MSDN seems to have changed again Does anyone have a link I could follow?

    Try cppreference.com
    https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/algorithm/upper_bound
    https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/algorithm/lower_bound

    I don't like the new re-vamped MSDN either - it doesn't seem to also search Stack Overflow (and other areas) as the previous version did

    Yeah, I agree... For as far back as I can remember MSDN was always my "goto site" for stuff like this - but the new version is a huge step backwards IMHO

    Re: Re-vamped MSDN

    The algorithm functions (including upper_bound & lower_bound) are documented on MSDN at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cpp...s?view=vs-2019

    But starting from MSDN it's now a real pain to find. You have to go down the rabbit hole and hope you don't find the maze of twisty passages all alike

    It was always very difficult to search using "MSDN search engine"...
    But now with the docs.microsoft.com it became almost impossible to find what you need. Well, Google helps! (Thank heaven! )

    MSDN has gone downhill since MS has relied on 3rd party blog content.

    upper_bound
    lower_bound

    Putting msdn upper_bound to google search instantly brought this up.

    You're right. Searching MSDN using google is now easier than using search in MSDN!

    This isn't rocket surgery - just search bing or google and include 'msdn' in the search phrase.

    ... and it was the same ten years ago. And also 15 years ago.

    Re: Re-vamped MSDN

    For Standard Library stuff, I always use cppreference. Just Google or Bing and include "cppreference", even without including it, it will be near the top.
