    C++ standard libraries

    Okay, this may sound lame, but I really can't find an answer.

    Who codes the C and C++ standard libraries?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, there is nothing stopping anyone from making an implementation, like for example, STLPort. But compiler vendors make their own implementations. They have to, it's considered part of C++.

    I do!
    Actually I have written some code that is in a vendor's libraries somewhere... Tis but a drop in the ocean though.

    I'm surprised to see that you people are not aware that all *Standard* Libraries are being written directly or indirectly by Skynet !
