  • Last Updated : 22 Oct, 2018

The multiset::get_allocator() method in C++ STL is a built-in function in C++ STL which returns a copy of the allocator object associated with the multiset.



where allocator_type is the type of the allocator used by the container.

Parameters: The function does not take any parameter.

Return Value: This method returns the allocator object used to construct the container.

Below programs illustrate the multiset::get_allocator() function:
Program 1:

// CPP code to illustrate multiset::get_allocator
#include <iostream>
#include <set>
using namespace std;
int main()
    multiset<int> mymultiset;
    int* p;
    unsigned int i;
    // allocate an array of 5 elements
    // using myset's allocator:
    p = mymultiset
    // assign some values to array
    p[0] = 10;
    p[1] = 10;
    p[2] = 20;
    p[3] = 30;
    p[4] = 20;
    cout << "The allocated array contains: ";
    for (i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
        cout << p[i] << " ";
    cout << endl;
    mymultiset.get_allocator().deallocate(p, 5);
    return 0;
The allocated array contains: 10 10 20 30 20
