std::advance in C++

std::advance advances the iterator ‘it’ by n element positions.

Syntax :

template 
    void advance (InputIterator& it, Distance n);

it : Iterator to be advanced
n : Number of element positions to advance.
This shall only be negative for random-access and bidirectional iterators.

Return type :
None.

Motivation problem : A vector container is given. Task is to print alternate elements.



Examples :

Input : 10 40 20 50 80 70
Output : 10 20 80

// C++ program to illustrate
// using std::advance
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    // Vector container
    std::vector<int> vec;
  
    // Initialising vector
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
        vec.push_back(i * 10);
  
    // Printing the vector elements
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
        std::cout << vec[i] << " ";
    }
  
    std::cout << std::endl;
  
    // Declaring the vector iterator
    std::vector<int>::iterator it = vec.begin();
  
    // Printing alternate elements
    while (it < vec.end()) {
        std::cout << *it << " ";
        std::advance(it, 2);
    }
}
