    The C++ Standard Template Library is a widely-used library that is based on the generic programming paradigm. The usage of this library does not warrant bug-free programs. Furthermore, many new errors may arise from the inaccurate use of the generic programming paradigm, like dereferencing invalid iterators or misunderstanding remove-like algorithms. Most of the STL algorithms have preconditions which are checked neither at compilation time nor at runtime. Violation of such a precondition results in undefined behaviour. In this paper we propose solutions for a subset of these problems. The techniques we describe help programmers use generic algorithms on sorted intervals in a safer way. We present a new iterator adaptor type and tag as well as safe containers which keep track their iterators validness. We measure the runtime overhead of these extensions. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
