struct insert_range
    typedef unspecified type;


insert_range performs an insertion of a range of elements at an arbitrary position in the sequence.


#include <boost/mpl/insert_range.hpp>

Model of

Tag Dispatched Metafunction


Parameter Requirement Description
Sequence Extensible Sequence or Extensible Associative Sequence A sequence to insert into.
Pos Forward Iterator An iterator in Sequence specifying the insertion position.
Range Forward Sequence The range of elements to be inserted.

Expression semantics

For any Extensible Sequence s, iterator pos in s, and Forward Sequence range:

typedef insert<s,pos,range>::type r;
Return type:

Extensible Sequence.


pos is an iterator into s.


r is a sequence, concept-identical to s, of the following elements: [begin<s>::type, pos), [begin<r>::type, end<r>::type), [pos, end<s>::type).


The relative order of the elements in r is the same as in s;

size<r>::value == size<s>::value + size<range>::value


Sequence dependent. Quadratic in the worst case, linear at best; see the particular sequence class' specification for details.


typedef vector_c<int,0,1,7,8,9> numbers;
typedef find< numbers,integral_c<int,7> >::type pos;
typedef insert_range< numbers,pos,range_c<int,2,7> >::type range;

BOOST_MPL_ASSERT_RELATION( size<range>::value, ==, 10 );
BOOST_MPL_ASSERT(( equal< range,range_c<int,0,10> > ));

typedef insert_range<
    , end< list0<> >::type
    , list<int>
    >::type result2;

BOOST_MPL_ASSERT_RELATION( size<result2>::value, ==, 1 );
