iterator before_begin();
(since C++11)
const_iterator before_begin() const;
(since C++11)
const_iterator cbefore_begin() const;
(since C++11)

Returns an iterator to the element before the first element of the container. This element acts as a placeholder, attempting to access it results in undefined behavior. The only usage cases are in functions Template:rlpf, Template:rlpf, Template:rlpf, Template:rlpf and the increment operator: incrementing the before-begin iterator gives exactly the same iterator as obtained from begin()/cbegin().
