What Are The Container Adapters in Modern C++

Hello developers, here we will explain the container adapters. Before I get into that, as a C++ Builder developer, I should say that these past few weeks have made me so happy that we released the new RAD Studio 12.1. This release has massive C++ upgrades to the new Windows 64-bit Modern Compiler along with new VCL/FMX/Skia options to help with modern programming. There were also a lot of new features for Delphi and in the RAD Studio IDE itself too. Here is the full video released about the latest RAD Studio 12.1 Update.

What is a container adapter in C++?

In C++, a Container is a holder object that stores data elements (a collection of data objects), can be used efficiently in memory operations such as move, copy, delete , and they are very useful to iterate and search members with their amazing methods and properties. The C++ Standards library defines 4 container types. 

  • Sequence Containers ( vector, array, deque, list, forward_list )
  • Associative Containers ( map, multimap, set, multiset )
  • Unordered Associative Containers ( unordered_map, unordered_multimap, unordered_set, unordered_multiset )
  • Container Adapters  ( stack, queue, priority_queue )

This week we have new posts about Container Adapters. We have more articles about some of the other container types on the LearnCPlusPlus.org website.

Where I can I learn C++ and try these examples with a free C++ compiler?

If you don’t know anything about C++ or the C++ Builder IDE, don’t worry, we have a lot of great, easy to understand examples on the LearnCPlusPlus.org website and they’re all completely free. Just visit this site and copy and paste any examples there into a new Console, VCL, or FMX project, depending on the type of post. We keep adding more C and C++ posts with sample code. In today’s round-up of recent posts on LearnCPlusPlus.org, we have new articles with very simple examples that can be used with:

How to learn programming with C++?

The most powerful data storage arrays in Modern C++ are Containers and they are very useful to iterate and search members with their amazing methods and properties. A container is a holder object that stores data elements (a collection of data objects). std::vector, std::array, std::list are these kinds of containers. There is a very useful container adapter implemented by the std::stack. In the first post, we explain what std::stack is, and how can we add, delete, and print out them.

In C++, there is another useful container std::queue that allows you to add members to the back of the member list efficiently. In the second post, we explain what std::queue is and give some examples.

Another useful container is std::priority_queue which allows you to add members to the back of the member list efficiently. In the last post, we explain what std::priority_queue is and give some examples. Before that let’s remind ourselves what containers are in C++ programming and what are their types.

How to learn modern C++ for free using C++ Builder 12?

LearnCPlusPlus.org has been producing full of educational articles about C and modern C++ that can be used with C++ Builder, C++ Builder CE, Dev-C++, BCC Compiler and some other compilers such as the GCC compiler. Here are our post picks for today.

We like to hear your feedback. You motivate us so much with your likes and comments on social media (find us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Reddit, Twitter / X and all over) and here on the blogs too. Thank you for your valuable comments and questions. All of them help improve the quality of our future posts.

We have a lot of unique posts waiting to come. We keep adding new topics every week about C++ in general and specific topics for C++ Builder, Dev-C++, and for the other C++ compilers. Please keep following our LearnCPlusPlus.org website for the latest posts and updates. Feel free to comment and share with your colleagues, students, members – knowledge is power, and knowledge shared is empowering.
