(1) For the nonrelational and nonpredicate versions, T::operator== defines an equivalence relation on T.
(2) For the relational versions, rel defines an equivalence relation on T.
(3) For the copy versions, the output array does not overlap the input array.
(4) For the copy versions, the output array has enough cells to hold the result.
(5) T has operator=.
These functions remove elements that satisfy a given criterion, moving the remaining elements to the left. They return a pointer to the cell following the last such element, such that if b and p are, respectively, the pointer to the beginning of the array and the function result, then b and p delimit a conceptually "new" array in which elements satisfying the criterion have been removed.
template <class T> T* rem(const T& val,T* b,T* e);
Uses equality with val as the criterion for removal, with T::operator== used for equality. rem does not preserve the relative order of elements that are not equal to val; that is, it is not stable. If stability is desired then rem_s should be used.
template <class T> T* rem_c(const T& val,T* b1,T* e1,T* b2);
Like rem except that the input array is preserved and the result is written to a new array beginning at location b2.
template <class T> T* rem_p(int (*pred)(const T*),T* b,T* e);
Like rem except that it uses satisfaction of pred as the criterion for removal. That is, if p is a pointer into the array, then *p will be removed if pred(p) is true and retained if pred(p) is false.
template <class T> T* rem_pc(int (*pred)(const T*),T* b1,T* e1,T* b2);
Like rem_p except that the input array is preserved and the result is written to a new array beginning at location b2.
template <class T> T* rem_ps(int (*pred)(const T*),T* b,T* e);
Like rem_p except that it uses a stable algorithm. That is, the relative order of elements within both groups is preserved.
template <class T> T* rem_psc(int (*pred)(const T*),T* b1,T* e1,T* b2);
Like rem_ps except that the input array is preserved and the result is written to a new array beginning at location b2.
template <class T> T* rem_r(int (*rel)(const T*, const T*) const T& val, T* b, T* e );
Like rem except that it uses rel for the equality test.
template <class T> T* rem_rc( int (*rel)(const T*, const T*), const T& val, T* b, T* e, T* b2 );
Like rem_r except that the input array is preserved and the result is written to a new array beginning at location b2.
template <class T> T* rem_rs(int (*rel)(const T*, const T*), const T& val,T* b,T* e);
Like rem_r except that it uses a stable algorithm. That is, the relative order of elements within both groups is preserved.
template <class T> T* rem_rsc( int (*rel)(const T*, const T*), const T& val, T* b1, T* e1, T* b2 );
Like rem_rs except that the input array is preserved and the result is written to a new array beginning at location b2.
template <class T> T* rem_s(const T& val,T* b,T* e);
Like rem except that it uses a stable algorithm. That is, the relative order of elements within both groups is preserved.
template <class T> T* rem_sc(const T& val,T* b1,T* e1,T* b2);
Like rem_s except that the input array is preserved and the result is written to a new array beginning at location b2.
If N is the size of the array, then complexity is O(N) for all versions. More precisely,
noncopy versions
Exactly N tests of the criterion are done. If P is the number of elements that do not satisfy the criterion, then at most P assignments are done.
copy versions
Exactly N tests of the criterion are done. If P is the number of elements that do not satisfy the criterion, then exactly P assignments are done.
Because a Block (see Block(3C++)) can always be used wherever an array is called for, Array Algorithms can also be used with Blocks. In fact, these two components were actually designed to be used together.
