Same as generate_n, but enforces the use of a checked iterator as output iterator. checked_generate_n is defined in the stdext namespace.

Note Note

This algorithm is a Microsoft extension to the Standard C++ Library. Code implemented using this algorithm will not be portable.

template<class OutputIterator, class Size, class Generator>
   void checked_generate_n(
      Size _Count, 


An output iterator addressing the position of first element in the range to which values are to be assigned.


A signed or unsigned integer type specifying the number of elements to be assigned a value by the generator function.


A function object that is called with no arguments that is used to generate the values to be assigned to each of the elements in the range.

See generate_n for a code sample.
