Using the Standard Library Algorithms with Arrays

Using the Standard Library Algorithms with Arrays

Pointers may be used as iterators when using the standard library algorithms found in . Remember that the start iterator should point to the first element, while the finish iterator should point just beyond the last element. For example, this code sorts an array of integers:

////////// begin codeint numbers[10] = { ... };std::sort(numbers, numbers + 10);////////// end code

This code sorts using a custom comparison function:

////////// begin codestruct s {    // ...};bool less_than(const s& s0, const s& s1){    // return true if s0 should come before s1}// ...s array[10];// initialize arraystd::sort(array, array + 10, less_than);////////// end code
