std::search - question about last parameter...

Hi,

Quote from cplusplus.com:

first1, last1
    Forward iterators to the initial and final positions of the searched sequence. The range used is [first1,last1), which contains all the elements between first1 and last1, including the element pointed by first1 but not the element pointed by last1.

Does this mean that if I'm looking for a vector that has a size of 1, that the last element of the main vector won't be searched? I.e:

ABCD
D

D wouldn't be found?

Thanking you. :)

No, the 'last' element (available via the 'end()' member of the respective container) is a 'pseudo-iterator' (you'll get an exception when thrying to access its contents) representing a special state of the iteration, thus I just assume poor wording while having that in mind.
