Based on your example, is this what you look for?

polygon red;
red = output[0];

// ring is a vector
std::vector<point> const& points = red.outer();
for (std::vector<point>::size_type i = 0; i < points.size(); ++i)

Could you point which examples from the geometry library website
do not compile for you?

I'd encourage you to try the geometry library for Boost trunk.

I have to admit, it is not clear to me what you mean as "get a couple of
standard vectors". But, try my example above and see if this is
what you are looking for.
