list::back and list::front

Illustrates how to use the list::back and list::front Standard Template Library (STL) functions in Visual C++.

reference back( ); 
const_reference back( ) const; 
reference front( ); 
const_reference front( ) const; 
void pop_back( ); 
void pop_front( ); 
void push_back( 
   const T& x 
); 
void push_front( 
   const T& x 
);

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 back member function returns a reference to the last element of the controlled sequence. The front member function returns a reference to the first element of the controlled sequence. The pop_back member function removes the last element of the controlled sequence. The pop_front member function removes the first element of the controlled sequence. All these functions require that the controlled sequence be nonempty. The push_back member function inserts an element with value x at the end of the controlled sequence. The push_front member function inserts an element with value x at the beginning of the controlled sequence.

//  This example shows how to use the various stack
//                 like functions of list.
