Yes doing that worked. I use the stl 5.2.1

> The problem is that the iterator is pointer type, and I should have used iterator_traits rather than trying to directly access the member typedef value_type.  Are you compiling with C++11 version of stl?  This should never work for pointer type, yet my tests pass.  It must be the case that every version of the stl that I've tested with implements vector iterator as class type while yours is using pointer type.  Even though I know better, it is hard to catch these kinds of mistakes when tests pass.
