You can simply use the member functions and operators of std::vector<>
in the p[rint] gdb command. For example:

(gdb) p v.size()
$1 = 8
(gdb) p v[2]
$2 = (double &) @0x804c048: 12

This works perfectly provided that
      * optimization is turned off and debugging (-ggdb) is turned on,
      * operator[] (or any other query function you would like to use)
        is used at least once in the code, thus its code is put in the
      * you debug a running process, not a core dump.

I wouldn't say that. It is at least as well debuggable as a C code.
(Debugging any non-trivial data structure in C is also very cumbersome).
The only major difficulty I frequently encounter is that debugging of
the STL header files cannot be turned off.
