template <typename T >
struct VectorPlus : public std::binary_function<std::vector<T>,std::vector<T>,std::vector<T> >

  • Version changed from trunk to 0.6.3

This is also a problem in the trunk. I'll fix it manually, i.e., no merge will be done since utility.h has been split in the trunk.

Fixed in changeset:478 for the 0.6 branch.

Just a comment on this code. In my taste it is preferable to use reserve and back_inserter iterator rather than resize and normal iterator.

That is irrelavant for this bug, though.

comment:5 Changed 11 years ago by jari

There is no resize here. The res vector is allocated in proper size directly. However, using the back_inserter may be somewhat quicker since the res vector get initialized and later on copied.

comment:6 Changed 11 years ago by peter

Yes, sorry, my point is that the default constructor for T is called u.size() times, which could be avoided using a back_inserter. But you already understood that.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

(In [485]) Fixes #267 in trunk. This ChangeSet?? should be equivalent with [478], but using a back_insert_iterator to speed up it slightly.
