Vector/ Integer to Char* Questions

Recommended Posts

As shown by the title I have two questions: 1. How do you erase a random element in a vector (I know its slow but that doesn't matter for my program). For example say I want to erase the 3rd element in a vector of integers called MyVector. How would I do it? 2. I have an integer that I want to convert to a char*. How do I do this. ex. int x = 5; char* y = x; //Y now equals "5". Is there a function that does this. Thanks for the help.

1. Vector::erase(iterator first, iterator last);
Make first and last the same thing

2. itoa for the cstdlib

If you have a vector v, you can erase the nth element in v with v.erase(v.begin() + n).

itoa is not a standard function. To convert an integer into a string you can use boost::lexical_cast, a std::stringstream or snprintf(). With a std::stringstream you can just use operator<< to insert into the stringstream and use the str() member function.

to give you an idea of how each looks:

#include <sstream>

int ival = some_integer_value;
std::string output;
std::stringstream ss;
ss << ival;
ss >> output;
results: output now contains the string representation of ival

int ival = some_integer_value;
char buf[128];
_snprintf(buf, sizeof(buf), "%i", ival);

results: buff now contains the string representation of ival

PS. im not sure if snprintf is standard, std::stringstream is and itoa isn't.
