In the following sections, a and b denote values of type X or const X, difference_­type and reference refer to the types iterator_­traits<X>​::​difference_­type and iterator_­traits<X>​::​reference, respectively, n denotes a value of difference_­type, u, tmp, and m denote identifiers, r denotes a value of X&, t denotes a value of value type T, o denotes a value of some type that is writable to the output iterator.
[Note 1:
For an iterator type X there must be an instantiation of iterator_­traits<X> ([iterator.traits]).
