Category: functors Component type: type


Project2nd is a functors that takes two arguments and returns its second argument; the first argument is unused. It is essentially a generalization of identity to the case of a BinaryFunction.


int main()
  Vector<char*> v1(10, (char*) 0);
  Vector<int> v2(10, 137);
  Vector<int> result(10);

  transform(v1.begin(), v1.end(), v2.begin(), result.begin(),
            project2nd<char*, int>());
  assert(equal(v2.begin(), v2.end(), result.begin()));


Defined in the standard header functional, and in the nonstandard backward-compatibility header function.h. This function object is an SGI extension; it is not part of the C++ standard.

Member Where defined Description
first_argument_type AdaptableBinaryFunction The type of project2nd's first argument: Arg1
