multiset::operator= in C++ STL

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 16 Mar, 2018

Multisets are a type of associative containers similar to set, with an exception that multiple elements can have same values.

multiset::operator=

This operator is used to assign new contents to the container by replacing the existing contents.
It also modifies the size according to the new contents.

Syntax :

multisetname1 = (multisetname2)
Parameters :
Another container of the same type.
Result :
Assign the contents of the container passed as 
parameter to the container written on left side of the operator.
set::operator=

This operator is used to assign new contents to the container by replacing the existing contents.
It also modifies the size according to the new contents.



Syntax :

setname1 = (setname2)
Parameters :
Another container of the same type.
Result :
Assign the contents of the container passed as 
parameter to the container written on left side of the operator.

Examples:

Input  :  mymultiset1 = 1, 2, 3
          mymultiset2 = 3, 2, 1, 4
          mymultiset1 = mymultiset2;
Output :  mymultiset1 = 3, 2, 1, 4

Input  :  mymultiset1 = 2, 6, 1, 5
          mymultiset2 = 3, 2
          mymultiset1 = mymultiset2;
Output :  mymultiset1 = 3, 2
Input  :  myset1 = 1, 2, 3
          myset2 = 3, 2, 1, 4
          myset1 = myset2;
Output :  myset1 = 3, 2, 1, 4

Input  :  myset1 = 2, 6, 1, 5
          myset2 = 3, 2
          myset1 = myset2;
Output :  myset1 = 3, 2

Errors and Exceptions

1. If the containers are of different types, an error is thrown.
2. It has a basic no exception throw guarantee otherwise.




// INTEGER MULISET EXAMPLE
// CPP program to illustrate
// Implementation of = operator
#include <iostream>
#include <set>
using namespace std;
   
int main()
{
    multiset<int> mymultiset1{ 1, 7, 4, 9, 0};
    multiset<int> mymultiset2{ 3, 4 };
    mymultiset1 = mymultiset2;
    cout << "mymultiset1 = ";
    for (auto it = mymultiset1.begin();
              it != mymultiset1.end(); ++it)
        cout << ' ' << *it;
    return 0;
}

Output:

mymultilist1 = 3 4




// CHARACTER MULTISET EXAMPLE
// CPP program to illustrate
// Implementation of = operator
#include <iostream>
#include <set>
using namespace std;
   
int main()
{
    multiset<char> mymultiset1{ 'a', 'b', 'c'};
    multiset<char> mymultiset2{ 'x', 'y' };
    mymultiset1 = mymultiset2;
    cout << "mymultiset1 = ";
    for (auto it = mymultiset1.begin();
              it != mymultiset1.end(); ++it)
        cout << ' ' << *it;
    return 0;
}

Output:

mymultilist1 = x y




// STRING MULTISET EXAMPLE
// CPP program to illustrate
// Implementation of = operator
#include <iostream>
#include <set>
#include<string>
using namespace std;
   
int main()
{
    multiset<string> mymultiset1{ "This","is","a","computer science portal"};
    multiset<string> mymultiset2{ "GeeksForGeeks" };
    mymultiset1 = mymultiset2;
    cout << "mymultiset1 = ";
    for (auto it = mymultiset1.begin();
              it != mymultiset1.end(); ++it)
        cout << ' ' << *it;
    return 0;
}

Output:

mymultilist1 = GeeksForGeeks
