set::size (STL Samples)

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

template<class _K, class _Pr, class _A> 
   class set  
   { 
      public: 
      // Function 1: 
      size_type size() const; 
   }

Note Note

The class/parameter names in the prototype do not match the version in the header file. Some have been modified to improve readability.

The size function is used to determine the number of elements in the controlled sequence.

// SetSize.cpp
