The C++ function std::algorithm::is_permutation() tests whether a sequence is permutation of other or not. It uses operator == for comparison. This function was defined in C++11.
template <class ForwardIterator1, class ForwardIterator2 > bool is_permutation(ForwardIterator1 first1, ForwardIterator1 last1, ForwardIterator2 first2); first1, last1: Input iterators to the initial and final positions of the first sequence. first2 : Input iterator to the initial position of the second sequence. Return value : true : if all the elements in range [first1, last1] compare equal to those of the range starting at first2 in any order. false : Any element missing or exceeding.
The function considers as many elements of this sequence as those in the range [first1, last1]. If this sequence is shorter, it causes undefined behaviour.
B is a permutation of A
Other approach to find if arrays are equal or not is discussed here .
Another Example: Check whether two strings are anagram of each other

Versions of std::permutation
template< class ForwardIt1, class ForwardIt2 > bool is_permutation( ForwardIt1 first1, ForwardIt1 last1, ForwardIt2 first2 ); // (since C++11) template< class ForwardIt1, class ForwardIt2, class BinaryPredicate > bool is_permutation( ForwardIt1 first1, ForwardIt1 last1, ForwardIt2 first2, BinaryPredicate p ); // (since C++11) template< class ForwardIt1, class ForwardIt2 > bool is_permutation( ForwardIt1 first1, ForwardIt1 last1, ForwardIt2 first2, ForwardIt2 last2 ); // (since C++14) template< class ForwardIt1, class ForwardIt2, class BinaryPredicate > bool is_permutation( ForwardIt1 first1, ForwardIt1 last1, ForwardIt2 first2, ForwardIt2 last)2, BinaryPredicate p ); //(since C++14) first1, last1 : the range of elements to compare first2, last2 : the second range to compare p : binary predicate which returns true if the elements should be treated as equal.
