swapswap

Exchanges the elements of two sets.

template <class Key, class Traits, class Allocator>  
void swap(set<Key, Traits, Allocator>& left, set<Key, Traits, Allocator>& right);

Parameters

right
The set providing the elements to be swapped, or the set whose elements are to be exchanged with those of the set left.

left
The set whose elements are to be exchanged with those of the set right.

Remarks

The template function is an algorithm specialized on the container class set to execute the member function left``.swap( right). This is an instance of the partial ordering of function templates by the compiler. When template functions are overloaded in such a way that the match of the template with the function call is not unique, then the compiler will select the most specialized version of the template function. The general version of the template function

template < classT> void swap( T&, T&)

in the algorithm class works by assignment and is a slow operation. The specialized version in each container is much faster as it can work with the internal representation of the container class.

Example

See the code example for the member class set::swap for an example of the use of the template version of swap.

Exchanges the elements of two multisets.

template <class Key, class Traits, class Allocator>  
void swap(multiset<Key, Traits, Allocator>& left, multiset<Key, Traits, Allocator>& right);

Parameters

right
The multiset providing the elements to be swapped, or the multiset whose elements are to be exchanged with those of the multiset left.

left
The multiset whose elements are to be exchanged with those of the multiset right.
