uSTL - uSTL is a partial implementation of the STL specification.uSTL is a partial implementation of the STL specification intended to reduce code size of the derivative programs. Usually, the STL containers manage their own storage with new and delete operators, which create strongly typed storage. Although type safety is a good thing, placing memory management code into a template necessitates its reinstantiation for every template instance used by the derivative program. This produces substantial code bloat, that is frequently derided by C developers and used by them as an argument that C is better than C++. The uSTL implementation solves this problem by factoring memory management code into a non-template base class, ustl::memblock, which performs unstructured memory allocation. STL containers are then implemented as template wrappers for memblock to provide a measure of type safety.
