swap

Exchanges the values of the elements between two types of objects, assigning the contents of the first object to the second object and the contents of the second to the first.

template<class Type>
   void swap(
      Type& _Left, 
      Type& _Right
   );

Parameters

_Left
The first object to have its elements exchanged.
_Right
The second object to have its elements exchanged.

Remarks

This algorithm is exceptional in the STL in being designed to operate on individual elements rather than on a range of elements.

Example

// alg_swap.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
#include <vector>
#include <algorithm>
#include <iostream>

bool greater5 ( int value )
{
   return value >5;
}

int main( ) 
{
   using namespace std;
   vector <int> v1, v2;
   vector <int>::iterator Iter1, Iter2, result;

   int i;
   for ( i = 0 ; i <= 10 ; i++ )
   {
      v1.push_back( i );
   }

   int ii;
   for ( ii = 0 ; ii <= 4 ; ii++ )
   {
      v2.push_back( 5 );
   }

   cout << "Vector v1 is ( " ;
   for ( Iter1 = v1.begin( ) ; Iter1 != v1.end( ) ; Iter1++ )
      cout << *Iter1 << " ";
   cout << ")." << endl;

   cout << "Vector v2 is ( " ;
   for ( Iter2 = v2.begin( ) ; Iter2 != v2.end( ) ; Iter2++ )
      cout << *Iter2 << " ";
   cout << ")." << endl;

   swap( v1, v2 );

   cout << "Vector v1 is ( " ;
   for ( Iter1 = v1.begin( ) ; Iter1 != v1.end( ) ; Iter1++ )
      cout << *Iter1 << " ";
   cout << ")." << endl;

   cout << "Vector v2 is ( " ;
   for ( Iter2 = v2.begin( ) ; Iter2 != v2.end( ) ; Iter2++ )
      cout << *Iter2 << " ";
   cout << ")." << endl;
}

Output

Vector v1 is ( 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ).
Vector v2 is ( 5 5 5 5 5 ).
Vector v1 is ( 5 5 5 5 5 ).
Vector v2 is ( 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ).
