Well the weird thing about C++ is by itself it's about 2/3 of a language, while the standard template libraries are (usually) the other 1/3

and it's strange to think of it that way, but that's how it ends up baking out - STL is so intrinsic to any significant C++ development that you really don't even want to do it without it, just like you wouldn't want to write an app without an operating system.

It's not just about runtime libraries, although that's most of it. Because of the way templates work, you can use them to basically implement "language features" of a sort. So STL sort of folds itself into the language.

And the cool thing about that is you can potentially make your own "domain specific" language superset from C++ just like STL does - the spirit framework does this, and boost kind of does.

So that's something that's really hard to get used to at first because it's pretty unique to C++

after that, just learning how to use generic programming is the big learning curve, but I swear once you do, you'll fall in love.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
