Naive question about stl library

Hello, I have a naive question about STL library. I'm currently using ICC 12.1 above MSVS2010. I saw that the STL headers used during debugging are those coming with Visual Studio. I looked at the ICC folder and found no SLT-like header files.
My question is: since ICC can be used standalone and STL are part of C++, how all of this is performed when Visual Studio is not installed? Maybe my question makes no sense?

No, ICC can not be used standalone.
On Windows it requires the header and runtime libs from VS. On Linux it requires gcc.

I can't see what you mean by standalone use. Intel Windows compilers depend on the corresponding Microsoft compilers to supply a majority of headers and libraries, as well as the basic linker. A long time ago there were versions which included Dinkumware STL, but that didn't support operation without Microsoft SDK.
