object::erase (1 of 2 overloads)

Erase an element.

Synopsis
iterator
erase(
    const_iterator pos);
Description

Remove the element pointed to by pos, which must be valid and dereferenceable. References and iterators to the erased element are invalidated. Other iterators and references are not invalidated.

Remarks

The end() iterator (which is valid but cannot be dereferenced) cannot be used as a value for pos.

Complexity

Constant on average, worst case linear in size().

Exception Safety

No-throw guarantee.

Return Value

An iterator following the removed element.

Parameters

Name

Description

pos

An iterator pointing to the element to be removed.
