C++ Creating a Pair and accessing the elements


Example

Pair allows us to treat two objects as one object. Pairs can be easily constructed with the help of template function std::make_pair.

Alternative way is to create pair and assign its elements (first and second) later.

#include <iostream>
#include <utility>

int main()
{
    std::pair<int,int> p = std::make_pair(1,2); //Creating the pair
    std::cout << p.first << " " << p.second << std::endl; //Accessing the elements




    //We can also create a pair and assign the elements later
    std::pair<int,int> p1;
    p1.first = 3;
    p1.second = 4;
    std::cout << p1.first << " " << p1.second << std::endl;

    //We can also create a pair using a constructor
    std::pair<int,int> p2 = std::pair<int,int>(5, 6);
    std::cout << p2.first << " " << p2.second << std::endl;

    return 0;
}
