..and the same disadvantage, namely verbosity in the common case. I'm
only suggesting that passing the whole container should be available as
an alternative, not instead of the begin-end pair. I seem to recall
that making the STL algorithms accept whole containers has been
proposed, but the only thing I can find now is the item
"Container-based algorithms" at
Maybe someone else knows what I'm thinking of?
