Debuggin a Simple STL Algorithm :: STL

Recommended Posts

Hi. I would like to debug a simple algorithm that does not work using an STL solution. The solution works via iteration. std::list theList; for (unsigned int i = 0; i < 10; ++i) theList.push_back(i); // theList should now contain 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. // Remove "6" from the list. // Assume that iTheList is an iterator that points to element with value 6. theList.erase(iTheList); // After erase() theList should now contain 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 9. Okay. Everything above works as designed. Now I would like to decrement everything bigger or equal to "6," thus make theList hold 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. Here is the iterative solution. ----- // Given iTheList points to theList.begin(). while (*iTheList <= 6) ++iTheList // Now decrement until end of theList. while (*iTheList != theList.end() { *iTheList = *iTheList - 1; ++iTheList; } ----- The iterative solution above works perfect. I would like to implement a more efficient and elegant solution. Here is one solution using STL algorithms. However, it does not work correctly. ----- std::for_each(std::find_if(theList.begin(), theList.end(), std::bind2nd(std::greater<>, 6)), theList.end(), std::bind2nd(std::minus<>, 1)); ----- The STL solution above does not work. The logic and syntec seem to be valid. Is there a logic or syntec misunderstanding in the STL solution? I looked over the function objects and function adapter. They are valid. Thanks, KUphryn

for_each never assigns the result of the operation back, it just calls the function.
You are just doing value - 1, not value = value - 1.
That's the job of transform.


itor = theList.erase( std::find( theList.begin(), theList.end(), 6 ) );
std::transform( itor, theList.end(), itor, std::bind2nd( std::minus<int>(), 1 ) );

Okay. I added a class object that will do the minus manually.


  
template <typename T>
class DecreaseOne : public std::binary_function<T, T, void>
{
public:
void operator()(T &lp, const T &rp)
{
lp -= rp;
}
};


Here the call to it.


  
std::for_each(std::find_if(theList.begin(), theList.end(), std::bind2nd(std::greater<size_t>(), 6)), theList.end(), std::bind2nd(DecreaseOne<size_t>(), 1));


The compiler will not compile. Here is the errors.


  
error C2064: term does not evaluate to a function
error C2662: 'DecreaseOne<unsigned int>::operator`()'' : cannot convert 'this' pointer from 'const DecreaseOne<T>' to 'DecreaseOne<T> &'
with
[
T=size_t
]
and
[
T=size_t
]


I defined DecreaseOne functor as a global class.

What is the problem?

Thanks,
Kuphryn
