Description

A vector is a sequence that supports random access to elements, constant time insertion and removal of elements at the end, and linear time insertion and removal of elements at the beginning or in the middle. The number of elements in a vector may vary dynamically; memory management is automatic. boost::interprocess::vector is similar to std::vector but it's compatible with shared memory and memory mapped files.

vector public types

  1. typedef T value_type;

    The type of object, T, stored in the vector

vector public construct/copy/destruct

  1. vector(const A & a = A());

    Effects: Constructs a vector taking the allocator as parameter.

    Throws: If allocator_type's copy constructor throws.

    Complexity: Constant.

  2. vector(size_type n, const T & value = T(), 
           const allocator_type & a = allocator_type());

    Effects: Constructs a vector that will use a copy of allocator a and inserts n copies of value.

    Throws: If allocator_type's default constructor or copy constructor throws or T's default or copy constructor throws.

    Complexity: Linear to n.

  3. vector(const vector< T, A > & x);

    Effects: Copy constructs a vector.

    Postcondition: x == *this.

    Complexity: Linear to the elements x contains.

  4. vector(unspecified mx);

    Effects: Move constructor. Moves mx's resources to *this.

    Throws: If allocator_type's copy constructor throws.

    Complexity: Constant.

  5. template<typename InIt> 
      vector(InIt first, InIt last, const allocator_type & a = allocator_type());

    Effects: Constructs a vector that will use a copy of allocator a and inserts a copy of the range [first, last) in the vector.

    Throws: If allocator_type's default constructor or copy constructor throws or T's constructor taking an dereferenced InIt throws.

    Complexity: Linear to the range [first, last).

  6. vector& operator=(const vector< T, A > & x);

    Effects: Makes *this contain the same elements as x.

    Throws: If memory allocation throws or T's copy constructor throws.

    Complexity: Linear to the number of elements in x.

  7. vector& operator=(unspecified mx);

    Effects: Move assignment. All mx's values are transferred to *this.

    Throws: If allocator_type's copy constructor throws.

    Complexity: Constant.

  8. ~vector();

    Effects: Destroys the vector. All stored values are destroyed and used memory is deallocated.

    Throws: Nothing.

    Complexity: Linear to the number of elements.
