The code is incorrect. For me, it doesn't compile even with the "using namespace std".

The correct code is:

typename T::first_type val = iter_value.template get<0>().first ;

Note the added "template" keyword.

Older versions of GCC may have been lenient accepting code like this without
the "template" keyword, but it has always been incorrect.
