std::unordered_multiset::find(3) C++ Standard Libary std::unordered_multiset::find(3)


std::unordered_multiset::find - std::unordered_multiset::find


iterator find( const Key& key ); (1)
const_iterator find( const Key& key ) const; (2)
template< class K > iterator find( const K& x ); (3) (since C++20)
template< class K > const_iterator find( const K& x ) const; (4) (since C++20)

1,2) Finds an element with key equivalent to key.
3,4) Finds an element with key that compares equivalent to the value x. This
overload participates in overload resolution only if Hash::is_transparent and
KeyEqual::is_transparent are valid and each denotes a type. This assumes that such
Hash is callable with both K and Key type, and that the KeyEqual is transparent,
which, together, allows calling this function without constructing an instance of


key - key value of the element to search for
x - a value of any type that can be transparently compared with a key

Return value

Iterator to an element with key equivalent to key. If no such element is found,
past-the-end (see end()) iterator is returned.


Constant on average, worst case linear in the size of the container.


Feature-test macro: __cpp_lib_generic_unordered_lookup (for overloads (3,4))


// Run this code

#include <iostream>
#include <unordered_set>

int main()
// simple comparison demo
std::unordered_multiset<int> example = {1, 2, 3, 4};

auto search = example.find(2);
if (search != example.end()) {
std::cout << "Found " << (*search) << '\n';
} else {
std::cout << "Not found\n";
