equal_to Struct

A binary predicate that tests whether a value of a specified type is equal to another value of that type.

template<class Type> 
   struct equal_to : public binary_function<Type, Type, bool>  
   { 
      bool operator()( 
         const Type& _Left,  
         const Type& _Right 
      ) const; 
   };

_Left

The left operand of type Type in the equality to be tested.

_Right

The right operand of type Type in the equality to be tested.

true if _Left equals _Right; false if _Left does not equal _Right.

The objects of type Type must be equality comparable. This requires that the operator== defined on the set of objects satisfies the mathematical properties of an equivalence relation All the built-in numeric and pointer types satisfy this requirement.

   cout << ")" << endl;
}
The vector v1 = ( 0 1 4 5 8 9 ) The vector v2 = ( -0 1 -4 5 -8 9 ) The result of the element-wise equal_to comparison between v1 & v2 is: ( 1 1 0 1 0 1 )
