    Is STL container thread safe?

    I am a newbie in STL and want to use it in my multi-threaded application.

    I want to know that is it safe to use STL container in multi-threaded environment?

    Please help.

    No. None of the STL code is thread safe.

    You are responsible to provide thread safety in your code.

    Use proper mechanism like... critical section, semaphore, events etc to make your code thread safe.

    For more information on synchronization:
