tuple Class

Wraps a fixed-length sequence of elements.

template<class T1, class T2, ..., class TN>
class tuple {
public:
    tuple();
    explicit tuple(P1, P2, ..., PN);              // 0 < N
    tuple(const tuple&);
    template <class U1, class U2, ..., class UN>
        tuple(const tuple<U1, U2, ..., UN>&);
    template <class U1, class U2>
        tuple(const pair<U1, U2>&);               // N == 2
    void swap(tuple& right);
    tuple& operator=(const tuple&);
    template <class U1, class U2, ..., class UN>
        tuple& operator=(const tuple<U1, U2, ..., UN>&);
    template <class U1, class U2>
        tuple& operator=(const pair<U1, U2>&);    // N == 2
    };
TN

The type of the Nth tuple element.

The template class describes an object that stores N objects of types T1, T2, ..., TN, respectively, where where 0 <= N <= Nmax. The extent of a tuple instance tuple<T1, T2, ..., TN> is the number N of its template arguments. The index of the template argument Ti and of the corresponding stored value of that type is i - 1. Thus, while we number the types from 1 to N in this documentation, the corresponding index values range from 0 to N - 1.

The tuple p1 is: ( 10, 0.011, one ).
The tuple p2 is: ( 10, 0.222, two ).
The tuple p3 is: ( 10, 0.011, one ).
The tuples in the vector are
( 10, 0.011, one ).
( 10, 0.222, two ).
( 3, 0.033, three ).
