Advertisements

Description

The C++ function std::unordered_multimap::erase() removes mapped value associated with key k.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for std::unordered_multimap::erase() function form std::unordered_map() header.

C++11

size_type erase(const key_type& k);

Parameters

k − Key of the element to be removed.

Return value

Returns number of elements removed.

Time complexity

Linear i.e. O(n)

Example

The following example shows the usage of std::unordered_multimap::erase() function.

#include <iostream>
#include <unordered_map>

using namespace std;

int main(void) {
   unordered_multimap<char, int> umm = {
            {'a', 1},
            {'b', 2},
            {'c', 3},
            {'d', 4},
            {'e', 5}
            };

   cout << "Unordered_multimap contains following elements "
        << "before remove operation" << endl;

   for (auto it = umm.begin(); it != umm.end(); ++it)
      cout << it->first << " = " << it->second << endl;

   cout << endl;

   umm.erase('e');

   cout << "Unordered_multimap contains following elements "
        << "after remove operation" << endl;

   for (auto it = umm.begin(); it != umm.end(); ++it)
      cout << it->first << " = " << it->second << endl;

   return 0;
}

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

Unordered_multimap contains following elements before remove operation
e = 5
a = 1
b = 2
c = 3
d = 4
Unordered_multimap contains following elements after remove operation
a = 1
b = 2
c = 3
d = 4
