STL Thread Safety

STL Thread Safety

Does STL use any synchronization, or do I have to implement it myself by critical section?

The C++ standard doesn’t specify whether STL is thread-safe or not (which is what you meant to ask). Threads and concurrent execution are platform-dependent features. Thus, an STL implementation can be fully thread-safe, partially thread-safe or single-threaded, depending on the compiler, vendor and configuration. Although most existing implementations are thread-safe to a certain degree, they differ in many subtle ways. So you should check the documentation of your current STL implementation for more information.

What is Metadata?

What is metadata? Well, It’s an odd concept to wrap your head around. Metadata is essentially the secondary layer of data that tracks details about the “regular” data. The regular
