fill_n

Category: algorithms Component type: function

Prototype

template <class OutputIterator, class Size, class T>
OutputIterator fill_n(OutputIterator first, Size n, const T& value);

Description

Fill_n assigns the value value to every element in the range [first, first+n). That is, for every iterator i in [first, first+n), it performs the assignment *i = value. The return value is first + n.

Definition

Defined in the standard header algorithm, and in the nonstandard backward-compatibility header algo.h.

Requirements on types

Preconditions

Complexity

Linear. Fill_n performs exactly n assignments.

Example

vector<double> V;
fill_n(back_inserter(V), 4, 42);
assert(V.size() == 4 && V[0] == 42 && V[1] == 42 && V[2] == 42 && V[3] == 42);
