For example:
[code]
//returns true if 'itr' is de-referencable and point to a valid item
template<typename Iterator>
bool isValid(Iterator itr){
/* implementation */
}
[/code]

I don't believe there is a standard way to do this.

MSVC++ has checked iterator support (and other SC++L implementations might as well) but it would take a really platform-specific hack to make use of it to do what you describe.
