string::operator+ 

Illustrates how to use the string::operator+ STL function in Visual C++.


template<class _E, class _TYPE, class _A> inline
   basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>
   operator+( 
      const basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>& LString,
      const _E *RCharArray 
   );
template<class _E, class _TYPE, class _A> inline
   basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>
   operator+( 
      const _E *LCharArray,
      const basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>& RString 
   );
template<class _E, class _TYPE, class _A> inline
   basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>
   operator+( 
      const basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>& LString,
      const _E RChar 
   );
template<class _E, class _TYPE, class _A> inline
   basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>
   operator+( 
      const _E LChar,
      const basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>& RString 
   );
template<class _E, class _TYPE, class _A> inline
   basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>
   operator+( 
      const basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>& LString,
      const basic_string<_E, _TYPE, _A>& RString 
   );
NoteNote

The class/parameter names in the prototype do not match the version in the header file. Some have been modified to improve readability.

There are five versions of the string::operator+ function. Two functions are used to concatenate a null-terminated character array and a basic_string. Two functions are used to concatenate a character and a basic_string. The last function is used to concatenate two basic_string variables.

// StringPlus.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
// Illustrates how to use the operator+ to concatenate
// a null-terminated character array and a basic_string,
// how to concatenate a character and a basic_string,
// and how to concatenate two basic_string variables.
//
// Functions:
//
//    operator+ : Concatenates a null-terminated character array and
//                a basic_string.
//    operator+ : Concatenates a character array and a basic_string.
//    operator+ : Concatenates two basic_string variables.

   cout << "C+S1 is " << result << endl;
}

Output

S1 is ABC
S2 is DEF
CP1 is GHI
C is J
S1+CP1 is ABCGHI
CP1+S1 is GHIABC
S1+S2 is ABCDEF
S1+C is ABCJ
C+S1 is JABC
