logical_not Class 

The class provides a predefined function object that performs the logical operation of negation on elements of a specified value type and tests for the truth or falsity of the result.


template<class Type>
   struct logical_not : public unary_function<Type, bool> 
   {
      bool operator()(
         const Type& _Left
      ) const;
   };

Parameters

_Left

The operand of type Type in the negation to be tested.

true if and only if _Left is false; false if and only if _Left is true.

// compile with: /EHsc

#include <iostream>

int main( )
{
   using namespace std;
   deque<bool> d1, d2 ( 7 );
   deque<bool>::iterator iter1, iter2;

   int i;
   for ( i = 0 ; i < 7 ; i++ )
   {
      d1.push_back((bool)((i % 2) != 0));
   }

   cout << boolalpha;    // boolalpha I/O flag on

   cout << "Original deque:\n d1 = ( " ;
   for ( iter1 = d1.begin( ) ; iter1 != d1.end( ) ; iter1++ )
      cout << *iter1 << " ";
   cout << ")" << endl;

   // To flip all the truth values of the elements,
   // use the logical_not function object
   transform( d1.begin( ), d1.end( ), d2.begin( ),logical_not<bool>( ) );
   cout << "The deque with its values negated is:\n d2 = ( " ;
   for ( iter2 = d2.begin( ) ; iter2 != d2.end( ) ; iter2++ )
      cout << *iter2 << " ";
   cout << ")" << endl;
}

Output

Original deque:
 d1 = ( false true false true false true false )
The deque with its values negated is:
 d2 = ( true false true false true false true )
