just a quickie... is there a way to get an iterator to a certain position in a vector? for example
  

// whilst this gets an iterator to the first posisiton

vector<foo>::iterator bar;

bar = fooVector.begin();

// is there a way of doing something like this?


bar = fooVector[3];

  
i''ve been trying to use a
const_reference 
with the [] operators but have no success so far...

hmmm, interesting - does my solution yield the same result? it seems to...

No, it doesn''t. The iterator of a vector is not guaranteed to be a pointer, it just happens to be in your compiler with its current STL implementation.
