Just to be picky, if my memory of C++ serves, ...
(*) For built-in types, it is true that prefix and postfix
increment/decrement have the same effect on the variable.
(*) For STL iterators, I guess that the same statement is true. At
least, I think that a violation of the symmetry would have
provoked my "Oh, eeeuuuw!" reflex so strongly that I would
remember it. <grin />
(*) For class types in general, the prefix and postfix operators can
be completely different. In my opinion, it is evil to do this;
but the language allows it.
