Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Checking a Vector's Capacity

The member function capacity() returns the total number of elements that a vector can hold without requiring reallocation:
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
using namespace std;

void main() 
 vector <int> vi;
 vi.reserve(10);  //make room for at least 10 more int's
 cout<< vi.size(); //output 0; no elements are stored in vi 
cout<< vi.capacity(); //output 10; vi has enough room for 10 elements
You can use capacity() before inserting new elements to check whether existing iterators may become invalidated as a result.
