Why not

template <class IteratorT>
string_type get(IteratorT beg, IteratorT end);

template <class IteratorT>
string_type get(IteratorT beg, IteratorT end, const string_type::value_type*

I don't really se the need for the converting get functions.

Why is pt.get<double>(path) better than lexical_cast<double>(pt.get(path)).
(or string_to or atof)

Same here: why not

pt.put(path.begin(), path.end(), lexical_cast<string>(val))
