C++ std::forward_list Example


Example

#include <forward_list>
#include <string>
#include <iostream>

template<typename T>
std::ostream& operator<<(std::ostream& s, const std::forward_list<T>& v) {
    s.put('[');
    char comma[3] = {'\0', ' ', '\0'};
    for (const auto& e : v) {
        s << comma << e;
        comma[0] = ',';
    }
    return s << ']';
}

int main() 
{
    // c++11 initializer list syntax:
    std::forward_list<std::string> words1 {"the", "frogurt", "is", "also", "cursed"};
    std::cout << "words1: " << words1 << '\n';
 
    // words2 == words1
    std::forward_list<std::string> words2(words1.begin(), words1.end());
    std::cout << "words2: " << words2 << '\n';
 
    // words3 == words1
    std::forward_list<std::string> words3(words1);
    std::cout << "words3: " << words3 << '\n';
 
    // words4 is {"Mo", "Mo", "Mo", "Mo", "Mo"}
    std::forward_list<std::string> words4(5, "Mo");
    std::cout << "words4: " << words4 << '\n';
}

Output:

words1: [the, frogurt, is, also, cursed]
words2: [the, frogurt, is, also, cursed]
words3: [the, frogurt, is, also, cursed]
words4: [Mo, Mo, Mo, Mo, Mo]
