i read somewhere that container.erase( iterator ) returns the next element. i may have misunderstood, but is this possible?
	std::list<Client>::iterator i = m_client.begin( );
	while( i != m_client.end( ) )
	{
		if( FD_ISSET( i->fd, &exception_fds ) )
			i = m_client.erase( i );
		else
			++i;
	}

Nope that is correct, if you just want to conditionally remove all occurrences of some given criteria/value you can use std::list's remove/remove_if method or the generic algorithm remove/remove_if (then use range version of std::list::erase for this one) instead of explicit hand loop code.

The "_if" versions takes custom unary predicate type (any C++ unary callable entity, free/member function, functor etc) while the non "_if" versions assume equality operator supported for the type in question.

Although not 100% accurate this has to be one of the best online references on the standard library containers & algorithms.
