<language>C++ class library developed at Texas Instruments that defines containers like Vectors, List, Hash_Table, etc. COOL has a shallow hierarchy with no common base class. The functionality is close to Common Lisp data structures (like libg++). Templates have a syntax like Cfront and g++ and are preprocessed by a special 'cpp' distributed with COOL and GECOOL. JCOOL is a version with real C++ templates.
