"Slower" than what?

The 'STL' (by which I'm assuming you mean the C++
standard library), has no 'speed' at all. It's
merely a specification of required behavior. An

Actual implementations are what will be 'fast' or
'slow'. The only way to determine this 'speed' is
to measure. Note that different implementations will
very likely show different performance.

Does it have 'overhead'? Of course. How could it not?

'STL' is not an OOP concept. It's an (obsolete) term
referring to the container/iterator/algorithm parts
of the C++ standard library. I.e. it's a language-
specific concept, not a OO one.

None of my favorite OOPL has a notion of STL.

This is a C++ specific question. Please post on c.l.c++.
