typedef std::deque<char> DequeString;
std::string s("Hello sweet world!");
std::string word("sweet");
DequeString dequeString;

// Copy "Hello sweet world!" into the deque string

// Now, I want to find where "sweet" appears in the dequeString. An iterator
to its location would be fine.

// This doesn't quite do it, since it looks for _any_ occurrence of a
character from word in dequeString

// But, I want to find where _the whole_ word occurs in dequeString, similar
to how std::string::find() does it:
std::string::size_type wordPos=s.find(word);

Is there something in boost or the standard C++ lib that can be used?
