std::iterator is the base class provided to simplify definitions of the required types for iterators.

Template parameters

Category - the category of the iterator. Must be one of iterator category tags.
T - the type of the values that can be obtained by dereferencing the iterator. This type should be void for output iterators.
Distance - a type that can be used to identify distance between iterators
Pointer - defines a pointer to the type iterated over (T)
Reference - defines a reference to the type iterated over (T)
