#include <iostream>
#include <set>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
      set<int, greater<int> > s;
      set<int, greater<int> >::iterator i;

      s.insert(4);
      s.insert(1);
      s.insert(2);
      s.insert(4);
      s.insert(3);
      s.insert(6);
         

       cout << "The set contains the elements: " << endl;
       for (i=s.begin();  i !=s.end();  i++)
       {
       cout << *i  << endl;
       }
}

       cout << "The set contains the elements: " << endl;
       for (i=s.begin();  i !=s.end();  i++)
       {
       cout << *i  << endl;
       }



while I understand that this is a for loop, I don't get how the individual parts work.


1)  how do I cout an element of the set?

     i know it's not

     cout << s << endl;


2)  more to follow.

you have an iterator object called i.
you have access to the first element in set, by doing:
i = s.begin;     // s is the set
now i points to the first element in set

to get element content, you have to use *i, this way:

int someelem = *i;

also, I cannot

cout << *i << endl;

directly right?

Euhm ... Just look at the code :

       cout << *i  << endl;

i is an iterator that points to an element in the set. You dereference the iterator to get the value using *i.

yes, you can, but as far as you have initialized the iterator with:
 i = s.begin();
or other similar
