    Standard Template Library

    A set of functions to make life easier..like vectors and maps. It is included in the C++ standard and all compiler should support it but thats not always the case.

    ANSI http://www.ansi.org/ is a standards organization.
    STL is the Standard Template Library (do a google search) basically a collection of template classes and functions that implement common algorithms and data structures like queues stacks, etc.
