An Introduction to the STL/CLR Library


The Standard Template Library (STL) is commonly used by C++ programmers and for good reason. It has many advantages over comparable libraries, such as the .NET Framework collections; it provides users with certain guarantees regarding the performance of the algorithms; and it separates algorithms from data. A new library, STL/CLR, brings these advantages to the managed code developer and presents an alternative to the .NET Framework collection classes, such as List, Dictionary, and so on. STL/CLR is a reimplementation of STL for C++/CLI, but it adds some additional functionality as well to make it easier to interoperate with .NET collections.
