Boost :

Is it possible to use boost interprocess' shared
memory allocator with the normal STL containers that
come with standard C++ build environments (gcc on
Linux and Solaris, Visual C++ on Windows, etc.)? I
know that there might be an issue with some STL
containers not properly supporting encapsulated
pointers that handle offset differences in memory
addresses. Is this the reason why interprocess has its
own containers?

I apologize if this is a fairly basic question. But I
think I may have hit a search blind-spot, and need
some help getting out.

Thanks in advance.
