emplace vs insert in C++ STL
In C++, all containers (vector, stack, queue, set, map, etc) support both insert and emplace operations.
Both are used to add an element in the container.
The advantage of emplace is, it does in-place insertion and avoids an unnecessary copy of object. For primitive data types, it does not matter which one we use. But for objects, use of emplace() is preferred for efficiency reasons.
it = ms.begin(); it != ms.end(); ++it)
<< (*it).first <<
<< (*it).second << endl;
Time Complexity: The time complexity depends upon the type of the container. Both the operations have same time complexity.
Priority Queue: O(log n)
Set: O(log n)
map: O(log n)
