comment Should I feel “uncomfortable” using auto in C++?
@ereOn: Using iterators announces that the body of the loop will only deal with a single element at a time, whereas indexing you may use multiple by offsetting the index. Each has its advantages. Additionally, while the performance of iterator vs indexing for vectors is pretty much the same, that is not necessarily true for other containers, where one can be significantly faster than the other. stackoverflow.com/questions/131241/…

catch(...) like most software constructs, is not inherently evil, only when it is misused.
