    Welcome to another installment of C9 Lectures covering the powerful general C++ library, STL. Joining us once again is the great Stephan T. Lavavej, Microsoft's keeper of the STL cloth (this means he manages the partnership between the owners of STL (dinkumware) and Microsoft, including, of course, bug fixes and enhancements to the STL that ships as part of Visual C++). Simply, Stephan is a C++ library developer.

    As is Stephan's nature, he elaborates on technical details in very substantive way. The Standard Template Library, orSTL, is a C++ library of container classes, algorithms, and iterators. STL provides many fundamental algorithms and data structures. Furthermore, the STL is a general-purpose library: its components are heavily parameterized, such that almost every component in the STL is a template.

    In part 8, Stephan guides us on a journey into the dense forest of Regular Expressions.
