SGI-STL based implementation of the STL

The ANSI/ISO C++ spec includes a standard C++ library, also known as the STL. GCC comes with an implementation that does not comply with this standard, but instead partly implements an older version. STLport is a freely available version, based on the SGI STL implementation. It is fully-compliant, supported, very fast and includes special debugging facilities, and interesting and useful extensions to the standard.
