    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    ++it means this:

    increment the iterator
    return the new location

    it++ means this:
    copy the iterator
    increment the original iterator
    return the copy
