generate (STL Samples) 

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


template<class InputIterator, class Function> inline
   Function for_each(
      InputIterator First,
      InputIterator Last,
      Function F
   )
template<class ForwardIterator, class Generator> inline
   void generate(
      ForwardIterator First,
      ForwardIterator Last,
      Generator Gen
   )

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 generate algorithm traverses the range [First, Last + 1), assigning to each element the value returned by Gen. generate modifies the elements in the specified range.

// generate.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc

// Functions:
//   generate - Fill a sequence using a generator function
//   Fibonacci - return the next Fibonacci number in the
//               Fibonacci series.

    end = Numbers.end() ;       // one past the location
                                // last element of Numbers
