public member function
template <class... Args> iterator emplace (const_iterator position, Args&&... args);
Construct and insert element
The container is extended by inserting a new element at position. This new element is constructed in place using args as the arguments for its construction.
This effectively increases the container size by one.
Unlike other standard sequence containers, list and forward_list objects are specifically designed to be efficient inserting and removing elements in any position, even in the middle of the sequence.
The element is constructed in-place by calling allocator_traits::construct with args forwarded.
A similar member function exists, insert, which either copies or moves existing objects into the container.
- Position in the container where the new element is inserted.
Member type const_iterator is a bidirectional iterator type that points to a const element.
- Arguments forwarded to construct the new element.
An iterator that points to the newly emplaced element.
Member type iterator is a bidirectional iterator type that points to an element.
The storage for the new elements is allocated using the container's allocator, which may throw exceptions on failure (for the default allocator, bad_alloc is thrown if the allocation request does not succeed).
int main ()
std::list< std::pair<int,char> > mylist;
mylist.emplace ( mylist.begin(), 100, 'x' );
mylist.emplace ( mylist.begin(), 200, 'y' );
std::cout << "mylist contains:";
for (auto& x: mylist)
std::cout << " (" << x.first << "," << x.second << ")";
std::cout << '\n';
mylist contains: (200,y) (100,x)
The container is modified.
No contained elements are accessed: concurrently accessing or modifying them is safe, although iterating ranges that include position is not.
Strong guarantee: if an exception is thrown, there are no changes in the container.
If allocator_traits::construct is not supported with the appropriate arguments, or if position is not valid, it causes undefined behavior.
