rotate (STL Samples)

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

template<class ForwardIterator> inline 
   void rotate( 
      ForwardIterator First, 
      ForwardIterator Middle, 
      ForwardIterator Last 
   )

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 rotate algorithm rotates the elements in the range [First, Last) to the right by n positions, where n = Middle - First.

// rotate.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
// Illustrates how to use the rotate function.
//
// Functions:
//    rotate - Rotate the items in a sequence by n positions.

Before calling rotate
Try this Tongue Twister: she sells sea shells by the sea shore
After calling rotate
Now try the rotated Tongue Twister: shells by the sea shore she sells sea
