C++11

template <class InputIterator>

Example

The following example shows the usage of std::forward_list::assign() function.

#include <iostream>
#include <forward_list>

using namespace std;

int main(void) {

   forward_list<int> fl1 = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
   forward_list<int> fl2;

   fl2.assign(fl1.begin(), fl1.end());

   cout << "List contains following elements" << endl;

   for (auto it = fl2.begin(); it != fl2.end(); ++it)
      cout << *it << endl;

   return 0;
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −
