STL/CLR Library Reference
The STL/CLR Library is a packaging of the Standard Template Library (STL), a subset of the Standard C++ Library, for use with C++ and the .NET Framework common language runtime (CLR). With STL/CLR, you can use all the containers, iterators, and algorithms of STL in a managed environment.
To use STL/CLR:
Include headers from the cliext include subdirectory instead of the usual Standard C++ Library equivalents.
Qualify library names with cliext:: instead of std::.
STL/CLR exposes the generic types and interfaces that it uses in cross-assembly scenarios in the .NET assembly Microsoft.VisualC.STLCLR.dll. This DLL is included in .NET Framework 3.5. If you redistribute an application that uses STL/CLR, you will need to include the .NET Framework 3.5, as well as any other Visual C++ libraries that your project uses, in the dependencies section of your setup project.
In addition, this section also describes the following components of STL/CLR:
