Dear all, Parallel::max() (and other parallel functions) assume, when a vector is supplied, that std::vector stores all its elements consecutively. Does the STL guarantee that this is true, or is this just an assumption that you make? (I'm asking because I need to do some things like this an a context without libMesh, and I have dealt a lot with converting a std::vector to a C array in earlier times because I was unable to find a piece of information that guarantees that I can safely to what you are doing.)
