C++Builder 2007 Features - New Dinkumware and iterator debugging

David Dean – C++Builder 2007 includes the newest dinkumware runtime libraries. (v5.01) This should bring a bunch of fixes, but more interesting is the new feature of iterator debugging. This will help you to detect when you are using iterators incorrectly.
