26.4.4 Class template map [map]

26.4.4.1 Class template map overview [map.overview]

A map is an associative container that supports unique keys (contains at most one of each key value) and provides for fast retrieval of values of another type T based on the keys. The map class supports bidirectional iterators.

A map satisfies all of the requirements of a container, of a reversible container, of an associative container, and of an allocator-aware container. A map also provides most operations described in [associative.reqmts] for unique keys. This means that a map supports the a_­uniq operations in [associative.reqmts] but not the a_­eq operations. For a map<Key,T> the key_­type is Key and the value_­type is pair<const Key,T>. Descriptions are provided here only for operations on map that are not described in one of those tables or for operations where there is additional semantic information.

26.4.4.2 map constructors, copy, and assignment [map.cons]

explicit map(const Compare& comp, const Allocator& = Allocator());

Effects: Constructs an empty map using the specified comparison object and allocator.

Complexity: Constant.

template <class InputIterator> map(InputIterator first, InputIterator last, const Compare& comp = Compare(), const Allocator& = Allocator());

Effects: Constructs an empty map using the specified comparison object and allocator, and inserts elements from the range [first, last).

Complexity: Linear in N if the range [first, last) is already sorted using comp and otherwise , where N is last - first.

26.4.4.3 map element access [map.access]

T& operator[](const key_type& x);

Effects: Equivalent to: return try_­emplace(x).first->second;

T& operator[](key_type&& x);

Effects: Equivalent to: return try_­emplace(move(x)).first->second;

T& at(const key_type& x); const T& at(const key_type& x) const;

Returns: A reference to the mapped_­type corresponding to x in *this.

Throws: An exception object of type out_­of_­range if no such element is present.

Complexity: Logarithmic.

26.4.4.4 map modifiers [map.modifiers]

template <class P> pair<iterator, bool> insert(P&& x); template <class P> iterator insert(const_iterator position, P&& x);

Effects: The first form is equivalent to return emplace(std​::​forward<P>(x)). The second form is equivalent to return emplace_­hint(position, std​::​forward<P>(x)).

Remarks: These signatures shall not participate in overload resolution unless is_­constructible_­v<value_­type, P&&> is true.

template <class... Args> pair<iterator, bool> try_emplace(const key_type& k, Args&&... args); template <class... Args> iterator try_emplace(const_iterator hint, const key_type& k, Args&&... args);

Requires: value_­type shall be EmplaceConstructible into map from piecewise_­construct, forward_­as_­tuple(k), forward_­as_­tuple(std​::​forward<Args>(args)...).

Effects: If the map already contains an element whose key is equivalent to k, there is no effect. Otherwise inserts an object of type value_­type constructed with piecewise_­construct, forward_­as_­tuple(k), forward_­as_­tuple(std​::​forward<Args>(args)...).

Returns: In the first overload, the bool component of the returned pair is true if and only if the insertion took place. The returned iterator points to the map element whose key is equivalent to k.

Complexity: The same as emplace and emplace_­hint, respectively.

template <class... Args> pair<iterator, bool> try_emplace(key_type&& k, Args&&... args); template <class... Args> iterator try_emplace(const_iterator hint, key_type&& k, Args&&... args);

Requires: value_­type shall be EmplaceConstructible into map from piecewise_­construct, forward_­as_­tuple(std​::​move(k)), forward_­as_­tuple(std​::​forward<Args>(args)...).

Effects: If the map already contains an element whose key is equivalent to k, there is no effect. Otherwise inserts an object of type value_­type constructed with piecewise_­construct, forward_­as_­tuple(std​::​move(k)), forward_­as_­tuple(std​::​forward<Args>(args)...).

Returns: In the first overload, the bool component of the returned pair is true if and only if the insertion took place. The returned iterator points to the map element whose key is equivalent to k.

Complexity: The same as emplace and emplace_­hint, respectively.

template <class M> pair<iterator, bool> insert_or_assign(const key_type& k, M&& obj); template <class M> iterator insert_or_assign(const_iterator hint, const key_type& k, M&& obj);

Requires: is_­assignable_­v<mapped_­type&, M&&> shall be true. value_­type shall be EmplaceConstructible into map from k, forward<M>(obj).

Effects: If the map already contains an element e whose key is equivalent to k, assigns std​::​forward<M>(obj) to e.second. Otherwise inserts an object of type value_­type constructed with k, std​::​forward<M>(obj).

Returns: In the first overload, the bool component of the returned pair is true if and only if the insertion took place. The returned iterator points to the map element whose key is equivalent to k.

Complexity: The same as emplace and emplace_­hint, respectively.

template <class M> pair<iterator, bool> insert_or_assign(key_type&& k, M&& obj); template <class M> iterator insert_or_assign(const_iterator hint, key_type&& k, M&& obj);

Requires: is_­assignable_­v<mapped_­type&, M&&> shall be true. value_­type shall be EmplaceConstructible into map from move(k), forward<M>(obj).

Effects: If the map already contains an element e whose key is equivalent to k, assigns std​::​forward<M>(obj) to e.second. Otherwise inserts an object of type value_­type constructed with std​::​​move(k), std​::​forward<M>(obj).

Returns: In the first overload, the bool component of the returned pair is true if and only if the insertion took place. The returned iterator points to the map element whose key is equivalent to k.

Complexity: The same as emplace and emplace_­hint, respectively.

26.4.4.5 map specialized algorithms [map.special]

template <class Key, class T, class Compare, class Allocator> void swap(map<Key, T, Compare, Allocator>& x, map<Key, T, Compare, Allocator>& y) noexcept(noexcept(x.swap(y)));

Effects: As if by x.swap(y).
