Questions tagged [stl]

The Standard Template Library, or STL, is a C++ library of generic containers, iterators, algorithms, and function objects. When C++ was standardised, large parts of the STL were adopted into the Standard Library, and these parts in the Standard Library are also sometimes referred to collectively as "the STL".
