allocator::max_size

Returns the number of elements of type Type that could be allocated by an object of class allocator before the free memory is used up.

size_type max_size( ) const;

The number of elements that could be allocated.

   int ii;

   {
      v2.push_back( ii * 10.0 );
   }

   cout << "The original vector v2 is:\n ( " ;

      cout << *v2Iter << " ";
   cout << ")." << endl;
   allocator<double>::size_type v2size;
   v2size = v2Alloc.max_size( );

   cout << "The number of doubles that can be allocated before\n"
        << " the free memory in the vector v2 is used up is: "
        << v2size << "." << endl;
}

The following output is for x86.

The original vector v1 is:
 ( 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ).
The number of integers that can be allocated before
 the free memory in the vector v1 is used up is: 1073741823.
The original vector v2 is:
 ( 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 ).
The number of doubles that can be allocated before
 the free memory in the vector v2 is used up is: 536870911.
