multiset (STL/CLR)

The template class describes an object that controls a varying-length sequence of elements that has bidirectional access. You use the container multiset to manage a sequence of elements as a (nearly) balanced ordered tree of nodes, each storing one element.

In the description below, GValue is the same as GKey, which in turn is the same as Key unless the latter is a ref type, in which case it is Key^.

Syntax

template<typename Key>  
    ref class multiset  
        :   public  
        System::ICloneable,  
        System::Collections::IEnumerable,  
        System::Collections::ICollection,  
        System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<GValue>,  
        System::Collections::Generic::ICollection<GValue>,  
        System::Collections::Generic::IList<GValue>,  
        Microsoft::VisualC::StlClr::ITree<Gkey, GValue>  
    { ..... };  

Parameters

Key
The type of the key component of an element in the controlled sequence.

Interface Description
ICloneable Duplicate an object.
IEnumerable Sequence through elements.
ICollection Maintain group of elements.
IEnumerable<T> Sequence through typed elements.
ICollection<T> Maintain group of typed elements.
ITree<Key, Value> Maintain generic container.

Remarks

The object allocates and frees storage for the sequence it controls as individual nodes. It inserts elements into a (nearly) balanced tree that it keeps ordered by altering the links between nodes, never by copying the contents of one node to another. That means you can insert and remove elements freely without disturbing remaining elements.

The object orders the sequence it controls by calling a stored delegate object of type multiset::key_compare (STL/CLR). You can specify the stored delegate object when you construct the multiset; if you specify no delegate object, the default is the comparison operator<(key_type, key_type). You access this stored object by calling the member function multiset::key_comp (STL/CLR)().

Such a delegate object must impose a strict weak ordering on keys of type multiset::key_type (STL/CLR). That means, for any two keys X and Y:

key_comp()(X, Y) returns the same Boolean result on every call.

If key_comp()(X, Y) is true, then key_comp()(Y, X) must be false.

If key_comp()(X, Y) is true, then X is said to be ordered before Y.

If !key_comp()(X, Y) && !key_comp()(Y, X) is true, then X and Y are said to have equivalent ordering.

For any element X that precedes Y in the controlled sequence, key_comp()(Y, X) is false. (For the default delegate object, keys never decrease in value.) Unlike template class set (STL/CLR), an object of template class multiset does not require that keys for all elements are unique. (Two or more keys can have equivalent ordering.)

Each element serves as both a ey and a value. The sequence is represented in a way that permits lookup, insertion, and removal of an arbitrary element with a number of operations proportional to the logarithm of the number of elements in the sequence (logarithmic time). Moreover, inserting an element invalidates no iterators, and removing an element invalidates only those iterators which point at the removed element.

A multiset supports bidirectional iterators, which means you can step to adjacent elements given an iterator that designates an element in the controlled sequence. A special head node corresponds to the iterator returned by multiset::end (STL/CLR)(). You can decrement this iterator to reach the last element in the controlled sequence, if present. You can increment a multiset iterator to reach the head node, and it will then compare equal to end(). But you cannot dereference the iterator returned by end().

Note that you cannot refer to a multiset element directly given its numerical position -- that requires a random-access iterator.

A multiset iterator stores a handle to its associated multiset node, which in turn stores a handle to its associated container. You can use iterators only with their associated container objects. A multiset iterator remains valid so long as its associated multiset node is associated with some multiset. Moreover, a valid iterator is dereferencable -- you can use it to access or alter the element value it designates -- so long as it is not equal to end().

Erasing or removing an element calls the destructor for its stored value. Destroying the container erases all elements. Thus, a container whose element type is a ref class ensures that no elements outlive the container. Note, however, that a container of handles does not destroy its elements.

Members

multiset::begin (STL/CLR)

Designates the beginning of the controlled sequence.

Syntax

iterator begin();  

Remarks

The member function returns a bidirectional iterator that designates the first element of the controlled sequence, or just beyond the end of an empty sequence. You use it to obtain an iterator that designates the current beginning of the controlled sequence, but its status can change if the length of the controlled sequence changes.

Example

// cliext_multiset_begin.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect first two items   
    Mymultiset::iterator it = c1.begin();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*begin() = {0}", *it);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*++begin() = {0}", *++it);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
*begin() = a  
*++begin() = b  

multiset::clear (STL/CLR)

Removes all elements.

Syntax

void clear();  

Remarks

The member function effectively calls multiset::erase (STL/CLR)( multiset::begin (STL/CLR)(), multiset::end (STL/CLR)()). You use it to ensure that the controlled sequence is empty.

Example

// cliext_multiset_clear.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// clear the container and reinspect   
    c1.clear();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   

// add elements and clear again   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   

    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    c1.clear();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
size() = 0  
 a b  
size() = 0  

multiset::const_iterator (STL/CLR)

The type of a constant iterator for the controlled sequence.

Syntax

    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    Mymultiset::const_iterator cit = c1.begin();   
    for (; cit != c1.end(); ++cit)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", *cit);

#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    Mymultiset::const_iterator cit = c1.begin();   
    for (; cit != c1.end(); ++cit)   
        {   // get a const reference to an element   
        Mymultiset::const_reference cref = *cit;   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", cref);   
        }

    return (0);   
    }  
a b c

Syntax

size_type count(key_type key);  

Parameters

key
Key value to search for.

Remarks

The member function returns the number of elements in the controlled sequence that have equivalent ordering with key. You use it to determine the number of elements currently in the controlled sequence that match a specified key.

Example

// cliext_multiset_count.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()

    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    System::Console::WriteLine("count(L'A') = {0}", c1.count(L'A'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("count(L'b') = {0}", c1.count(L'b'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("count(L'C') = {0}", c1.count(L'C'));   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
count(L'A') = 0  
count(L'b') = 1  
count(L'C') = 0  

multiset::difference_type (STL/CLR)

The types of a signed distance between two elements.

Syntax

typedef int difference_type;  

Remarks

The type describes a possibly negative element count.

Example

// cliext_multiset_difference_type.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// compute positive difference   
    Mymultiset::difference_type diff = 0;   
    for (Mymultiset::iterator it = c1.begin(); it != c1.end(); ++it)   
        ++diff;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("end()-begin() = {0}", diff);   

// compute negative difference   
    diff = 0;   
    for (Mymultiset::iterator it = c1.end(); it != c1.begin(); --it)   
        --diff;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("begin()-end() = {0}", diff);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
end()-begin() = 3  
begin()-end() = -3  

multiset::empty (STL/CLR)

Tests whether no elements are present.

Syntax

bool empty();  

Remarks

The member function returns true for an empty controlled sequence. It is equivalent to multiset::size (STL/CLR)() == 0. You use it to test whether the multiset is empty.

Example

// cliext_multiset_empty.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("empty() = {0}", c1.empty());   

// clear the container and reinspect   
    c1.clear();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("empty() = {0}", c1.empty());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
size() = 3  
empty() = False  
size() = 0  
empty() = True  

multiset::end (STL/CLR)

Designates the end of the controlled sequence.

Syntax

iterator end();  

Remarks

The member function returns a bidirectional iterator that points just beyond the end of the controlled sequence. You use it to obtain an iterator that designates the end of the controlled sequence; its status doesn not change if the length of the controlled sequence changes.

Example

// cliext_multiset_end.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect last two items   
    Mymultiset::iterator it = c1.end();   
    --it;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*-- --end() = {0}", *--it);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*--end() = {0}", *++it);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
*-- --end() = b  
*--end() = c  

multiset::equal_range (STL/CLR)

Finds range that matches a specified key.

Syntax

cliext::pair<iterator, iterator> equal_range(key_type key);  

Parameters

key
Key value to search for.

Remarks

The member function returns a pair of iterators cliext::pair<iterator, iterator>( multiset::lower_bound (STL/CLR)(key), multiset::upper_bound (STL/CLR)(key)). You use it to determine the range of elements currently in the controlled sequence that match a specified key.

Example

// cliext_multiset_equal_range.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
typedef Mymultiset::pair_iter_iter Pairii;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// display results of failed search   
    Pairii pair1 = c1.equal_range(L'x');   
    System::Console::WriteLine("equal_range(L'x') empty = {0}",   
        pair1.first == pair1.second);   

// display results of successful search   
    pair1 = c1.equal_range(L'b');   
    for (; pair1.first != pair1.second; ++pair1.first)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", *pair1.first);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
equal_range(L'x') empty = True  
 b  

multiset::erase (STL/CLR)

Removes elements at specified positions.

Syntax

iterator erase(iterator where);  
iterator erase(iterator first, iterator last);  
size_type erase(key_type key)  

Parameters

first
Beginning of range to erase.

key
Key value to erase.

last
End of range to erase.

where
Element to erase.

Remarks

The first member function removes the element of the controlled sequence pointed to by where, and returns an iterator that designates the first element remaining beyond the element removed, or multiset::end (STL/CLR)() if no such element exists. You use it to remove a single element.

The second member function removes the elements of the controlled sequence in the range [first, last), and returns an iterator that designates the first element remaining beyond any elements removed, or end() if no such element exists.. You use it to remove zero or more contiguous elements.

The third member function removes any element of the controlled sequence whose key has equivalent ordering to key, and returns a count of the number of elements removed. You use it to remove and count all elements that match a specified key.

Each element erasure takes time proportional to the logarithm of the number of elements in the controlled sequence.

Example

// cliext_multiset_erase.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// erase an element and reinspect   
    System::Console::WriteLine("erase(begin()) = {0}",   
        *c1.erase(c1.begin()));   

// add elements and display " b c d e"   
    c1.insert(L'd');   
    c1.insert(L'e');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// erase all but end   
    Mymultiset::iterator it = c1.end();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("erase(begin(), end()-1) = {0}",   
        *c1.erase(c1.begin(), --it));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0}", c1.size());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
erase(begin()) = b  
 b c d e  
erase(begin(), end()-1) = e  
size() = 1  

multiset::find (STL/CLR)

Finds an element that matches a specified key.

Syntax

iterator find(key_type key);  

Parameters

key
Key value to search for.

Remarks

If at least one element in the controlled sequence has equivalent ordering with key, the member function returns an iterator designating one of those elements; otherwise it returns multiset::end (STL/CLR)(). You use it to locate an element currently in the controlled sequence that matches a specified key.

Example

// cliext_multiset_find.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    System::Console::WriteLine("find {0} = {1}",   
        L'A', c1.find(L'A') != c1.end());   
    System::Console::WriteLine("find {0} = {1}",   
        L'b', *c1.find(L'b'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("find {0} = {1}",   
        L'C', c1.find(L'C') != c1.end());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c

Example

// cliext_multiset_generic_container.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>

multiset::insert (STL/CLR)

Adds elements.

Syntax

iterator insert(value_type val);  
iterator insert(iterator where, value_type val);  
template<typename InIter>  
    void insert(InIter first, InIter last);  
void insert(System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<value_type>^ right);  

Parameters

first
Beginning of range to insert.

last
End of range to insert.

right
Enumeration to insert.

val
Key value to insert.

where
Where in container to insert (hint only).

Remarks

Each of the member functions inserts a sequence specified by the remaining operands.

The first member function inserts an element with value val, and returns an iterator that designates the newly inserted element. You use it to insert a single element.

The second member function inserts an element with value val, using where as a hint (to improve performance), and returns an iterator that designates the newly inserted element. You use it to insert a single element which might be adjacent to an element you know.

The third member function inserts the sequence [first, last). You use it to insert zero or more elements copied from another sequence.

The fourth member function inserts the sequence designated by the right. You use it to insert a sequence described by an enumerator.

Each element insertion takes time proportional to the logarithm of the number of elements in the controlled sequence. Insertion can occur in amortized constant time, however, given a hint that designates an element adjacent to the insertion point.

Example

// cliext_multiset_insert.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()

    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// insert a single value, unique and duplicate   
    System::Console::WriteLine("insert(L'x') = {0}",   
        *c1.insert(L'x'));   

    System::Console::WriteLine("insert(L'b') = {0}",   
        *c1.insert(L'b'));   

    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// insert a single value with hint   
    System::Console::WriteLine("insert(begin(), L'y') = {0}",   
        *c1.insert(c1.begin(), L'y'));   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// insert an iterator range   
    Mymultiset c2;   
    Mymultiset::iterator it = c1.end();   
    c2.insert(c1.begin(), --it);   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();

multiset::lower_bound (STL/CLR)

Finds beginning of range that matches a specified key.

Syntax

iterator lower_bound(key_type key);  

Parameters

key
Key value to search for.

Remarks

The member function determines the first element X in the controlled sequence that has equivalent ordering to key. If no such element exists, it returns multiset::end (STL/CLR)(); otherwise it returns an iterator that designates X.

        *c1.lower_bound(L'a'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*lower_bound(L'b') = {0}",   
        *c1.lower_bound(L'b'));   
    return (0);

The member operator copies right to the object, then returns *this. You use it to replace the controlled sequence with a copy of the controlled sequence in right.

Example

// cliext_multiset_operator_as.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (Mymultiset::value_type elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign to a new container   
    Mymultiset c2;   
    c2 = c1;   
// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (Mymultiset::value_type elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  
a b c  

multiset::rbegin (STL/CLR)

Designates the beginning of the reversed controlled sequence.

Syntax

reverse_iterator rbegin();  

Remarks

The member function returns a reverse iterator that designates the last element of the controlled sequence, or just beyond the beginning of an empty sequence. Hence, it designates the beginning of the reverse sequence. You use it to obtain an iterator that designates the current beginning of the controlled sequence seen in reverse order, but its status can change if the length of the controlled sequence changes.

Example

// cliext_multiset_rbegin.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect first two items in reversed sequence   
    Mymultiset::reverse_iterator rit = c1.rbegin();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*rbegin() = {0}", *rit);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*++rbegin() = {0}", *++rit);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
*rbegin() = c  
*++rbegin() = b  

multiset::reference (STL/CLR)

The type of a reference to an element.

Syntax

typedef value_type% reference;  

Remarks

The type describes a reference to an element.

Example

// cliext_multiset_reference.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    Mymultiset::iterator it = c1.begin();   
    for (; it != c1.end(); ++it)   
        {   // get a reference to an element   
        Mymultiset::reference ref = *it;   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", ref);   
        }   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  

multiset::rend (STL/CLR)

Designates the end of the reversed controlled sequence.

Syntax

reverse_iterator rend();  

Remarks

The member function returns a reverse iterator that points just beyond the beginning of the controlled sequence. Hence, it designates the end of the reverse sequence. You use it to obtain an iterator that designates the current end of the controlled sequence seen in reverse order, but its status can change if the length of the controlled sequence changes.

Example

// cliext_multiset_rend.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// inspect first two items   
    Mymultiset::reverse_iterator rit = c1.rend();   
    --rit;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*-- --rend() = {0}", *--rit);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*--rend() = {0}", *++rit);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
*-- --rend() = b  
*--rend() = a  

multiset::reverse_iterator (STL/CLR)

The type of a reverse iterator for the controlled sequence.

Syntax

typedef T3 reverse_iterator;  

Remarks

// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c" reversed   
    Mymultiset::reverse_iterator rit = c1.rbegin();   
    for (; rit != c1.rend(); ++rit)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", *rit);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
c b a  

multiset::size (STL/CLR)

Counts the number of elements.

Syntax

size_type size();  

Remarks

The member function returns the length of the controlled sequence. You use it to determine the number of elements currently in the controlled sequence. If all you care about is whether the sequence has nonzero size, see multiset::empty (STL/CLR)().

Example

// cliext_multiset_size.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} starting with 3", c1.size());   

// clear the container and reinspect   
    c1.clear();   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} after clearing", c1.size());   

// add elements and clear again   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} after adding 2", c1.size());   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
size() = 3 starting with 3  
size() = 0 after clearing  
size() = 2 after adding 2  

multiset::size_type (STL/CLR)

// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');

    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// compute positive difference   
    Mymultiset::size_type diff = 0;   
    for (Mymultiset::iterator it = c1.begin(); it != c1.end(); ++it)   
        ++diff;   
    System::Console::WriteLine("end()-begin() = {0}", diff);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
end()-begin() = 3  

multiset::swap (STL/CLR)

Swaps the contents of two containers.

Syntax

void swap(multiset<Key>% right);  

Parameters

right
Container to swap contents with.

Remarks

The member function swaps the controlled sequences between this and right. It does so in constant time and it throws no exceptions. You use it as a quick way to exchange the contents of two containers.

Example

// cliext_multiset_swap.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// construct another container with repetition of values   
    Mymultiset c2;   
    c2.insert(L'd');   
    c2.insert(L'e');   
    c2.insert(L'f');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// swap and redisplay   
    c1.swap(c2);   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c  
d e f  
d e f  
a b c  

multiset::to_array (STL/CLR)

Copies the controlled sequence to a new array.

Syntax

cli::array<value_type>^ to_array();  

Remarks

// cliext_multiset_to_array.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// copy the container and modify it   
    cli::array<wchar_t>^ a1 = c1.to_array();   

    c1.insert(L'd');   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// display the earlier array copy   
    for each (wchar_t elem in a1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }  
a b c d  
a b c  

multiset::upper_bound (STL/CLR)

Finds end of range that matches a specified key.

Syntax

iterator upper_bound(key_type key);  

Parameters

key
Key value to search for.

Remarks

The member function determines the last element X in the controlled sequence that has equivalent ordering to key. If no such element exists, or if X is the last element in the controlled sequence, it returns multiset::end (STL/CLR)(); otherwise it returns an iterator that designates the first element beyond X. You use it to locate the end of a sequence of elements currently in the controlled sequence that match a specified key.

Example

// cliext_multiset_upper_bound.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display initial contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    System::Console::WriteLine("upper_bound(L'x')==end() = {0}",   
        c1.upper_bound(L'x') == c1.end());   

    System::Console::WriteLine("*upper_bound(L'a') = {0}",   
        *c1.upper_bound(L'a'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("*upper_bound(L'b') = {0}",   
        *c1.upper_bound(L'b'));   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
upper_bound(L'x')==end() = True  
*upper_bound(L'a') = b  
*upper_bound(L'b') = c  

multiset::value_comp (STL/CLR)

Copies the ordering delegate for two element values.

Syntax

value_compare^ value_comp();

        kcomp(L'a', L'a'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("compare(L'a', L'b') = {0}",   
        kcomp(L'a', L'b'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("compare(L'b', L'a') = {0}",   
        kcomp(L'b', L'a'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   
    return (0);   
    }

    System::Console::WriteLine("compare(L'a', L'a') = {0}",   
        kcomp(L'a', L'a'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("compare(L'a', L'b') = {0}",   
        kcomp(L'a', L'b'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine("compare(L'b', L'a') = {0}",   
        kcomp(L'b', L'a'));   
    System::Console::WriteLine();

        multiset<Key>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns !(left == right). You use it to test whether left is not ordered the same as right when the two multisets are compared element by element.

    c2.insert(L'a');   
    c2.insert(L'b');   
    c2.insert(L'd');   

// display contents " a b d"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();

        multiset<Key>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns true if, for the lowest position i for which !(right[i] < left[i]) it is also true that left[i] < right[i]. Otherwise, it returns left->size() < right->size() You use it to test whether left is ordered before right when the two multisets are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_multiset_operator_lt.cpp   
// compile with: /clr

    bool operator==(multiset<Key>% left,  
        multiset<Key>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns true only if the sequences controlled by left and right have the same length and, for each position i, left[i] == right[i]. You use it to test whether left is ordered the same as right when the two multisets are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_multiset_operator_eq.cpp

operator> (multiset) (STL/CLR)

List greater than comparison.

Syntax

template<typename Key>  
    bool operator>(multiset<Key>% left,  
        multiset<Key>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns right < left. You use it to test whether left is ordered after right when the two multisets are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_multiset_operator_gt.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign to a new container   
    Mymultiset c2;   
    c2.insert(L'a');   
    c2.insert(L'b');   
    c2.insert(L'd');   

// display contents " a b d"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b c] > [a b c] is {0}",   
        c1 > c1);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b d] > [a b c] is {0}",   
        c2 > c1);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
 a b d  
[a b c] > [a b c] is False  
[a b d] > [a b c] is True  

operator>= (multiset) (STL/CLR)

List greater than or equal comparison.

Syntax

template<typename Key>  
    bool operator>=(multiset<Key>% left,  
        multiset<Key>% right);  

Parameters

left
Left container to compare.

right
Right container to compare.

Remarks

The operator function returns !(left < right). You use it to test whether left is not ordered before right when the two multisets are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_multiset_operator_ge.cpp   
// compile with: /clr   
#include <cliext/set>   

typedef cliext::multiset<wchar_t> Mymultiset;   
int main()   
    {   
    Mymultiset c1;   
    c1.insert(L'a');   
    c1.insert(L'b');   
    c1.insert(L'c');   

// display contents " a b c"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

// assign to a new container   
    Mymultiset c2;   
    c2.insert(L'a');   
    c2.insert(L'b');   
    c2.insert(L'd');   

// display contents " a b d"   
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2)   
        System::Console::Write(" {0}", elem);   
    System::Console::WriteLine();   

    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b c] >= [a b c] is {0}",   
        c1 >= c1);   
    System::Console::WriteLine("[a b c] >= [a b d] is {0}",   
        c1 >= c2);   
    return (0);   
    }  
 a b c  
 a b d  
[a b c] >= [a b c] is True  
[a b c] >= [a b d] is False
