Standard Template Library
The Standard Template Library (STL) is a C++ library originally developed at Hewlett-Packard that was later made part of the ISO C++ 99 standard as the C++ Standard Library with some additions and modifications, so all compilers complying to that standard should support it or even have it included already.
This is certainly true for the latest versions of GCC.
For Visual Age C++ 3.0 some older versions of STLport reportedly have been usable, something around version 3.0 (see archive at the STLport site). However, the latest versions are not useable any more, mainly because the compiler does not support advanced features like namespaces (it isn't yet ISO C++ 99 compliant!) and also because the template implementation does not work together with what the STL assumes.
