The SimpleAllocator example provided by the C++11 standard (§, which is an allocator showing the minimal interface that satisfies the requirements, doesn't compile when used in a std::vector (or other container) with VC11 RC1.

It looks like std::vector if the member class template "rebind" of the allocator is missing doesn't fallback to the one provided by std::allocator_traits.

Thanks for reporting this bug. We've fixed it, and the fix will be available in VC12. (Note: VC9 = VS 2008, VC10 = VS 2010, VC11 = VS 2012.)

We've used variadic templates to implement N3485 [allocator.requirements]/3: "If Allocator is a class template instantiation of the form SomeAllocator<T, Args>, where Args is zero or more type arguments, and Allocator does not supply a rebind member template, the standard allocator_traits template uses SomeAllocator<U, Args> in place of Allocator::rebind<U>::other by default. For allocator types that are not template instantiations of the above form, no default is provided."
