:abstract: How would you fill up a vector with the numbers zero
  through one hundred using ``std::copy()``?  The only iterator
  operation missing from builtin integer types is an
  ``operator*()`` that returns the current value of the integer.
  The counting iterator adaptor adds this crucial piece of
  functionality to whatever type it wraps.  One can use the
  counting iterator adaptor not only with integer types, but with
  any incrementable type.
