remove_copy_if

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

template<class ForwardIterator, class OutputIterator, class Predicate>
   inline OutputIterator remove_copy_if(
      ForwardIterator First,
      ForwardIterator Last,
      OutputIterator Result,
      Predicate Pred
   )
Note   The class/parameter names in the prototype do not match the version in the header file. Some have been modified to improve readability.

Remarks

The remove_copy_if algorithm copies all elements from the range (First, Last) to the range starting at Result, skipping any element that causes the predicate to return true. It returns an iterator positioned immediately after the last new element.

Example

// remove_copy_if.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
// Illustrates how to use the remove_copy_if function.
//
// Functions:
//   remove_copy_if - copy the elements of a sequence to another sequence
//                    eliminating any elements that satisfy a predicate.
//   bind2nd - Returns true for elements for which the condition is true
//   begin - Returns an iterator that points to the first element in a
//           sequence
//   end - Returns an iterator that points one past the end of a sequence

Output

Numbers { 10 20 10 15 12 25 30 10  }

Total number of elements copied to Result = 6
Result { 10 20 10 15 12 10 0 0  }
