Enhancing Vector's Performance

Standard vector<> dynamically allocates the required amount of memory it needs; which saves you the bother of memory management. However, letting vector <> acquire additional memory slowly one chunk after another is unacceptable under real-time constraints. But this doesn't mean you have to abandon vector<> yet. In order to avoid the performance penalty of having it re-allocate memory, you can ensure that it has the right amount of memory allocated in advance, like this:
 class Message { //...
		};

#include <vector>
void RealTimeStuff( vector &vm); //severe time constraints

void main() {

using namespace std; //for vector<>

vector <Message> msgs; 


// right before a time-critical code, make room for 1000 Message //objects in advance

msgs.reserve(1000); 

//now call safely

RealTimeStuff(msgs);

}//end main()
