hash_multimap::load_factor (STL/CLR)

Counts the average elements per bucket.

Syntax

float load_factor();  

Remarks

The member function returns (float)hash_multimap::size (STL/CLR)() / hash_multimap::bucket_count (STL/CLR)(). You use it to determine the average bucket size.

Example

// cliext_hash_multimap_load_factor.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/hash_map>   

typedef cliext::hash_multimap<wchar_t, int> Myhash_multimap;   
int main()   
    {   
    Myhash_multimap c1 = gcnew Myhash_multimap;   
    c1.insert(Myhash_multimap::make_value(L'a', 1));   
    c1.insert(Myhash_multimap::make_value(L'b', 2));   
    c1.insert(Myhash_multimap::make_value(L'c', 3));   

// display contents " [a 1] [b 2] [c 3]"   
    for each (Myhash_multimap::value_type elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" [{0} {1}]", elem->first, elem->second);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect current parameters   
    System::Console::WriteLine("bucket_count() = {0}", c1.bucket_count());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("load_factor() = {0}", c1.load_factor());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("max_load_factor() = {0}",   
        c1.max_load_factor());   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// change max_load_factor and redisplay   
    c1.max_load_factor(0.25f);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("bucket_count() = {0}", c1.bucket_count());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("load_factor() = {0}", c1.load_factor());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("max_load_factor() = {0}",   
        c1.max_load_factor());   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// rehash and redisplay   
    c1.rehash(100);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("bucket_count() = {0}", c1.bucket_count());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("load_factor() = {0}", c1.load_factor());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("max_load_factor() = {0}",   
        c1.max_load_factor());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 [a 1] [b 2] [c 3]  
bucket_count() = 16  
load_factor() = 0.1875  
max_load_factor() = 4  

bucket_count() = 16  
load_factor() = 0.1875  
max_load_factor() = 0.25  

bucket_count() = 128
