multimap::multimap

multimap::multimap

Constructs a multimap that is empty or that is a copy of all or part of some other multimap.

multimap( );
explicit multimap(
   const Traits& _Comp
);
explicit multimap(
   const Traits& _Comp,
   const Allocator& _Al
);
map(
   const _ multimap& _Right
);
template<class InputIterator>
   multimap(
      InputIterator _First,
      InputIterator _Last
   );
template<class InputIterator>
   multimap(
      InputIterator _First,
      InputIterator _Last,
      const Traits& _Comp
   );
template<class InputIterator>
   multimap(
      InputIterator _First,
      InputIterator _Last,
      const Traits& _Comp,
      const Allocator& _Al
   );

Parameters

_Al
The storage allocator class to be used for this multimap object, which defaults to Allocator.
_Comp
The comparison function of type const Traits used to order the elements in the map, which defaults to Traits.
_Right
The map of which the constructed set is to be a copy.
_First
The position of the first element in the range of elements to be copied.
_Last
The position of the first element beyond the range of elements to be copied.

Remarks

All constructors store a type of allocator object that manages memory storage for the multimap and that can later be returned by calling get_allocator. The allocator parameter is often omitted in the class declarations and preprocessing macros used to substitute alternative allocators.

All constructors initialize their multimap.

All constructors store a function object of type Traits that is used to establish an order among the keys of the multimap and that can later be returned by calling key_comp.

The first three constructors specify an empty initial multimap, the second specifying the type of comparison function (_Comp) to be used in establishing the order of the elements and the third explicitly specifying the allocator type (_Al) to be used. The key word explicit suppresses certain kinds of automatic type conversion.

The fourth constructor specifies a copy of the multimap _Right.

The last three constructors copy the range [_First, _Last) of a map with increasing explicitness in specifying the type of comparison function of class Traits and allocator.

Example

// multimap_ctor.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
#include <map>
#include <iostream>

int main( )
{
   using namespace std;
   typedef pair <int, int> Int_Pair;
   multimap <int, int>::iterator m1_Iter, m3_Iter, m4_Iter, m5_Iter, m6_Iter;
   multimap <int, int, greater<int> >::iterator m2_Iter;

   // Create an empty multimap m0 of key type integer
   multimap <int, int> m0;

   // Create an empty multimap m1 with the key comparison
   // function of less than, then insert 4 elements
   multimap <int, int, less<int> > m1;
   m1.insert( Int_Pair( 1, 10 ) );
   m1.insert( Int_Pair( 2, 20 ) );
   m1.insert( Int_Pair( 3, 30 ) );
   m1.insert( Int_Pair( 4, 40 ) );

   // Create an empty multimap m2 with the key comparison
   // function of geater than, then insert 2 elements
   multimap <int, int, greater<int> > m2;
   m2.insert( Int_Pair( 1, 10 ) );
   m2.insert( Int_Pair( 2, 20 ) );

   // Create a multimap m3 with the 
   // allocator of multimap m1
   multimap <int, int>::allocator_type m1_Alloc;
   m1_Alloc = m1.get_allocator( );
   multimap <int, int> m3( less<int>( ), m1_Alloc );
   m3.insert( Int_Pair( 3, 30 ) );

   // Create a copy, multimap m4, of multimap m1
   multimap <int, int> m4( m1 );

   // Create a multimap m5 by copying the range m1[_First, _Last)
   multimap <int, int>::const_iterator m1_bcIter, m1_ecIter;
   m1_bcIter = m1.begin( );
   m1_ecIter = m1.begin( );
   m1_ecIter++;
   m1_ecIter++;
   multimap <int, int> m5( m1_bcIter, m1_ecIter );

   // Create a multimap m6 by copying the range m4[_First, _Last)
   // and with the allocator of multimap m2
   multimap <int, int>::allocator_type m2_Alloc;
   m2_Alloc = m2.get_allocator( );
   multimap <int, int> m6(m4.begin( ), ++m4.begin( ), less<int>( ), m2_Alloc);

   cout << "m1 =";
   for ( m1_Iter = m1.begin( ); m1_Iter != m1.end( ); m1_Iter++ )
      cout << " " << m1_Iter -> second;
   cout << endl;
   
   cout << "m2 =";
   for ( m2_Iter = m2.begin( ); m2_Iter != m2.end( ); m2_Iter++ )
      cout << " " << m2_Iter -> second;
   cout << endl;

   cout << "m3 =";
   for ( m3_Iter = m3.begin( ); m3_Iter != m3.end( ); m3_Iter++ )
      cout << " " << m3_Iter -> second;
   cout << endl;

   cout << "m4 =";
   for ( m4_Iter = m4.begin( ); m4_Iter != m4.end( ); m4_Iter++ )
      cout << " " << m4_Iter -> second;
   cout << endl;

   cout << "m5 =";
   for ( m5_Iter = m5.begin( ); m5_Iter != m5.end( ); m5_Iter++ )
      cout << " " << m5_Iter -> second;
   cout << endl;

   cout << "m6 =";
   for ( m6_Iter = m6.begin( ); m6_Iter != m6.end( ); m6_Iter++ )
      cout << " " << m6_Iter -> second;
   cout << endl;
}

Output

m1 = 10 20 30 40
m2 = 20 10
m3 = 30
m4 = 10 20 30 40
m5 = 10 20
m6 = 10
