22.3 Sequence containers [sequences]

22.3.8 Class template deque [deque] Overview [deque.overview]

A deque is a sequence container that supports random access iterators ([random.access.iterators]).
In addition, it supports constant time insert and erase operations at the beginning or the end; insert and erase in the middle take linear time.
That is, a deque is especially optimized for pushing and popping elements at the beginning and end.
Storage management is handled automatically.
A deque satisfies all of the requirements of a container, of a reversible container (given in tables in [container.requirements]), of a sequence container, including the optional sequence container requirements ([sequence.reqmts]), and of an allocator-aware container ([tab:containers.allocatoraware]Table *tab:containers.allocatoraware).
Descriptions are provided here only for operations on deque that are not described in one of these tables or for operations where there is additional semantic information.
