The multiset::max_size() is an observer function in C++ STL which returns the maximum number of elements a container can hold. This limit might be due to system or library implementations. Being an observer function it does not modify the multiset in any way.
Parameters: This function does not accept any parameters.
Return Value: This method returns a positive integer denoting the maximum number of of elements the container can hold.
Note: The value returned by this function is usually the theoretical limit of the size of the container. However, at runtime, the size of the container may be limited to a value less than that returned by max_size() function due to RAM limitations.
The program below demonstrates the use of unordered_multiset::max_size()
Number of elements the multiset can hold is: 4294967295
