std::iota in C++

Store increasing sequence
Assigns to every element in the range [first, last] successive values of val, as if incremented with ++val after each element is written.

Template :

void iota (ForwardIterator first, ForwardIterator last, T val);

Parameters :

first, last
Forward iterators to the initial and final positions of the sequence
to be written. The range used is [first, last), which contains all the
elements between first and last, including the element pointed by
first but not the element pointed by last.

val
Initial value for the accumulator. 

Return Type :
None

// CPP program to illustrate
// std :: iota
#include <iostream> // std::cout
#include <numeric> // std::iota
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int numbers[10];
    // Initailising starting value as 100
    int st = 100;
  
    std::iota(numbers, numbers + 10, st);
  
    std::cout << "Elements are :";
    for (auto i : numbers)
        std::cout << ' ' << i;
    std::cout << '\n';
  
    return 0;
}

Output:



Elements are : 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109

Application :
It can be used to generate a sequence of consecutive numbers.
