Post Problem in Iterator- g++

Hi all
following piece of code is giving compilation error under g++

using namespace std;
int main()
string s("Ashwini");
char *itr= s.begin();
return 0;

g++ is giving the following error message

cannot convert `__gnu_cxx::__normal_iterator<char*,
std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> > >' to
`char*' in assignment

If anyone has some idea then please help.
Thanx in advance

I found the solution :- Such kinf of pointers type casting wont work under g++ unlike Visual C++ compiler, so we have to take string::iterator instead of char *.
