stack (STL/CLR)

The template class describes an object that controls a varying-length sequence of elements that has last-in first-out access. You use the container adapter stack to manage an underlying container as a push-down stack.

In the description below, GValue is the same as Value unless the latter is a ref type, in which case it is Value^. Similarly, GContainer is the same as Container unless the latter is a ref type, in which case it is Container^.

Syntax

template<typename Value,
    typename Container>
    ref class stack
        :   public
        System::ICloneable,
        Microsoft::VisualC::StlClr::IStack<GValue, GContainer>
    { ..... };

Parameters

Value
The type of an element in the controlled sequence.

Container
The type of the underlying container.

Requirements

Header: <cliext/stack>

Namespace: cliext

Interfaces

Interface Description
ICloneable Duplicate an object.
IStack<Value, Container> Maintain generic container adapter.

Remarks

The object allocates and frees storage for the sequence it controls through an underlying container, of type Container, that stores Value elements and grows on demand. The object restricts access to pushing and popping just the last element, implementing a last-in first-out queue (also known as a LIFO queue, or stack).

Members

stack::assign (STL/CLR)

Replaces all elements.

Syntax

void assign(stack<Value, Container>% right);

Parameters

right
Container adapter to insert.

Remarks

The member function assigns right.get_container() to the underlying container. You use it to change the entire contents of the stack.

Example

// cliext_stack_assign.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#include <cliext/stack>

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {
    Mystack c1;

Remarks

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_stack_operator_as.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#include <cliext/stack>

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {
    Mystack c1;

    }
a b c
a b c

stack::pop (STL/CLR)

Removes the last element.

Syntax

Example

// cliext_stack_pop.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#include <cliext/stack>

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {
    Mystack c1;
    c1.push(L'a');
    c1.push(L'b');
    c1.push(L'c');

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

// pop an element and redisplay
    c1.pop();
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1.get_container())
        System::Console::Write("{0} ", elem);
    System::Console::WriteLine();
    return (0);
    }
a b c
a b

stack::push (STL/CLR)

Adds a new last element.

Syntax

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

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {
    Mystack c1;

    c1.push(L'c');

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

// modify top of stack and redisplay
    Mystack::reference ref = c1.top();
    ref = L'x';
    for each (wchar_t elem in c1.get_container())
        System::Console::Write("{0} ", elem);
    System::Console::WriteLine();
    return (0);
    }
a b c
a b x

stack::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 stack::empty (STL/CLR)().

Example

// cliext_stack_size.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#include <cliext/stack>

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {

        System::Console::Write("{0} ", elem);
    System::Console::WriteLine();
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} starting with 3", c1.size());

// pop an item and reinspect
    c1.pop();
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} after popping", c1.size());

// add two elements and reinspect
    c1.push(L'a');
    c1.push(L'b');
    System::Console::WriteLine("size() = {0} after adding 2", c1.size());

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

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

// compute positive difference
    Mystack::size_type diff = c1.size();
    c1.pop();

stack(stack<Value, Container>^ right);
explicit stack(container_type% wrapped);

Parameters

right
Object to copy.

wrapped
Wrapped container to use.

Remarks

The constructor:

stack();

creates an empty wrapped container. You use it to specify an empty initial controlled sequence.

The constructor:

stack(stack<Value, Container>% right);

creates a wrapped container that is a copy of right.get_container(). You use it to specify an initial controlled sequence that is a copy of the sequence controlled by the stack object right.

The constructor:

stack(stack<Value, Container>^ right);

creates a wrapped container that is a copy of right->get_container(). You use it to specify an initial controlled sequence that is a copy of the sequence controlled by the stack object *right.

The constructor:

explicit stack(container_type% wrapped);

uses the existing container wrapped as the wrapped container. You use it to construct a stack from an existing container.

Example

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

Example

// cliext_stack_operator_ne.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#include <cliext/stack>

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {
    Mystack c1;
    c1.push(L'a');
    c1.push(L'b');
    c1.push(L'c');

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

// assign to a new container
    Mystack c2;
    c2.push(L'a');
    c2.push(L'b');
    c2.push(L'd');

// display contents " a b d"
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2.get_container())
        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 False
[a b c] != [a b d] is True

operator< (stack) (STL/CLR)

Stack less than comparison.

Syntax

template<typename Value,
    typename Container>
    bool operator<(stack<Value, Container>% left,
        stack<Value, Container>% 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->stack::size (STL/CLR)() < right->size() You use it to test whether left is ordered before right when the two stacks are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_stack_operator_lt.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#include <cliext/stack>

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {
    Mystack c1;
    c1.push(L'a');
    c1.push(L'b');
    c1.push(L'c');

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

// assign to a new container
    Mystack c2;
    c2.push(L'a');
    c2.push(L'b');
    c2.push(L'd');

// display contents " a b d"
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2.get_container())
        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 False
[a b c] < [a b d] is True

operator<= (stack) (STL/CLR)

Stack less than or equal comparison.

Syntax

template<typename Value,
    typename Container>
    bool operator<=(stack<Value, Container>% left,
        stack<Value, Container>% 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 not ordered after right when the two stacks are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_stack_operator_le.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#include <cliext/stack>

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {
    Mystack c1;
    c1.push(L'a');
    c1.push(L'b');
    c1.push(L'c');

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

// assign to a new container
    Mystack c2;
    c2.push(L'a');
    c2.push(L'b');
    c2.push(L'd');

// display contents " a b d"
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2.get_container())
        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 True
[a b d] <= [a b c] is False

operator== (stack) (STL/CLR)

Stack equal comparison.

Syntax

template<typename Value,
    typename Container>
    bool operator==(stack<Value, Container>% left,
        stack<Value, Container>% 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 stacks are compared element by element.

Example

// cliext_stack_operator_eq.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#include <cliext/stack>

typedef cliext::stack<wchar_t> Mystack;
int main()
    {
    Mystack c1;
    c1.push(L'a');
    c1.push(L'b');
    c1.push(L'c');

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

// assign to a new container
    Mystack c2;
    c2.push(L'a');
    c2.push(L'b');
    c2.push(L'd');

// display contents " a b d"
    for each (wchar_t elem in c2.get_container())
        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

operator> (stack) (STL/CLR)

    typename Container>
    bool operator>(stack<Value, Container>% left,
        stack<Value, Container>% 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 stacks are compared element by element.

Example
