negate Struct

The struct provides a predefined function object that returns the negative of an element value.

template<class Type> 
   struct negate : public unary_function<Type, Type>  
   { 
      Type operator()( 
         const Type& _Left 
      ) const; 
   };

_Left

The value of an element whose negative is to be returned.

The negative of the parameter value: - _Left.

   {
      v1.push_back( 5 * i );
   }

   for ( Iter1 = v1.begin( ) ; Iter1 != v1.end( ) ; Iter1++ )

   cout << ")" << endl;

   // Finding the element-wise negatives of the vector v1
   transform ( v1.begin( ),  v1.end( ), v2.begin( ), negate<int>( ) );

   cout << "The negated elements of the vector = ( " ;
   for ( Iter2 = v2.begin( ) ; Iter2 != v2.end( ) ; Iter2++ )
      cout << *Iter2 << " ";
   cout << ")" << endl;
}
The vector v1 = ( -10 -5 0 5 10 15 20 25 ) The negated elements of the vector = ( 10 5 0 -5 -10 -15 -20 -25 )
