find

Category: algorithms Component type: function

Prototype

template<class InputIterator, class EqualityComparable>
InputIterator find(InputIterator first, InputIterator last,
                   const EqualityComparable& value);

Description

Returns the first iterator i in the range [first, last) such that *i == value. Returns last if no such iterator exists.

Definition

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

Requirements on types

Preconditions

Complexity

Linear: at most last - first comparisons for equality.

Example

list<int> L;
L.push_back(3);
L.push_back(1);
L.push_back(7);

list<int>::iterator result = find(L.begin(), L.end(), 7);
assert(result == L.end() || *result == 7);
