count_if (STL Samples) 

Illustrates how to use the count_if Standard Template Library (STL) function in Visual C++.


template<class InputIterator, class Predicate> inline 
   size_t count_if(
      InputIterator First,
      InputIterator Last,
      Predicate P
   )

NoteNote

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

The count_if algorithm counts the number of elements in the range [First, Last) that cause the predicate to return true and returns the number of elements for which the predicate was true.

// countif.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
//
// Functions:
//
//   count_if  - Count items in a range that satisfy a predicate.
//
//   begin     - Returns an iterator that points to the first element in
//               a sequence.
//
//   end       - Returns an iterator that points one past the end of a
//               sequence.
