These have never been part of C++, but rather part of a 3rd party library
(libg++). Libg++ is obsolete and users of this once quite useful library
have been migrating their code for the past few years. 

Please get a recent book on C++ (Stroustrup 3rd Ed is quite well written), 
and, if you're serious about programming in C++, a copy of the standard as 
well from ANSI ($18 gets you a PDF version).
