The header file 'boost/algorithm/cxx11/any_of.hpp' contains four variants
of a single algorithm, any_of
.
The algorithm tests the elements of a sequence and returns true if any of
the elements has a particular property.
The routine any_of
takes
a sequence and a predicate. It will return true if the predicate returns
true for any element in the sequence.
The routine any_of_equal
takes a sequence and a value. It will return true if any element in the sequence
compares equal to the passed in value.
Both routines come in two forms; the first one takes two iterators to define the range. The second form takes a single range parameter, and uses Boost.Range to traverse it.
The function any_of
returns
true if the predicate returns true any item in the sequence. There are two
versions; one takes two iterators, and the other takes a range.
namespace boost { namespace algorithm { template<typename InputIterator, typename Predicate> bool any_of ( InputIterator first, InputIterator last, Predicate p ); template<typename Range, typename Predicate> bool any_of ( const Range &r, Predicate p ); }}
The function any_of_equal
is similar to any_of
, but
instead of taking a predicate to test the elements of the sequence, it takes
a value to compare against.
namespace boost { namespace algorithm { template<typename InputIterator, typename V> bool any_of_equal ( InputIterator first, InputIterator last, V const &val ); template<typename Range, typename V> bool any_of_equal ( const Range &r, V const &val ); }}
Given the container c
containing
{ 0, 1,
2, 3, 14, 15 }
,
then
bool isOdd ( int i ) { return i % 2 == 1; } bool lessThan10 ( int i ) { return i < 10; } using boost::algorithm; any_of ( c, isOdd ) --> true any_of ( c.begin (), c.end (), lessThan10 ) --> true any_of ( c.begin () + 4, c.end (), lessThan10 ) --> false any_of ( c.end (), c.end (), isOdd ) --> false // empty range any_of_equal ( c, 3 ) --> true any_of_equal ( c.begin (), c.begin () + 3, 3 ) --> false any_of_equal ( c.begin (), c.begin (), 99 ) --> false // empty range
any_of
and any_of_equal
work on all iterators except
output iterators.
All of the variants of any_of
and any_of_equal
run in
O(N) (linear) time; that is, they compare against each
element in the list once. If any of the comparisons succeed, the algorithm
will terminate immediately, without examining the remaining members of the
sequence.
All of the variants of any_of
and any_of_equal
take their
parameters by value or const reference, and do not depend upon any global
state. Therefore, all the routines in this file provide the strong exception
guarantee.
any_of
is
also available as part of the C++11 standard.
any_of
and any_of_equal
both return false for
empty ranges, no matter what is passed to test against.
any_of_value
is a template parameter, rather than deduced from the first parameter
(std::iterator_traits<InputIterator>::value_type
) because that allows more
flexibility for callers, and takes advantage of built-in comparisons
for the type that is pointed to by the iterator. The function is defined
to return true if, for any element in the sequence, the expression *iter == val
evaluates to true (where iter
is an iterator to each element in the sequence)
