buffer (19 of 22 overloads)

Create a new non-modifiable buffer that represents the given POD vector.

    typename PodType,
    typename Allocator>
const_buffers_1 buffer(
    const std::vector< PodType, Allocator > & data);
Return Value

A const_buffers_1 value equivalent to:

    data.size() ? &data[0] : 0,
    data.size() * sizeof(PodType)); 

The buffer is invalidated by any vector operation that would also invalidate iterators.
