//  The original code for this example appeared in the shared_ptr documentation.
//  Ray Gallimore pointed out that foo_set was missing a Compare template
//  argument, so would not work as intended.  At that point the code was
//  turned into an actual .cpp file so it could be compiled and tested.

//  The application will produce a series of
//  objects of type Foo which later must be
//  accessed both by occurrence (std::vector)
//  and by ordering relationship (std::set).
