...one of the most highly
regarded and expertly designed C++ library projects in the
world. — Herb Sutter and Andrei
Create a new non-modifiable buffer that represents the given POD vector.
template< typename PodType, typename Allocator> const_buffer buffer( const std::vector< PodType, Allocator > & data, std::size_t max_size_in_bytes);
value equivalent to:
const_buffer( data.size() ? &data : 0, min(data.size() * sizeof(PodType), max_size_in_bytes));
The buffer is invalidated by any vector operation that would also invalidate iterators.
