Example

The following example shows the usage of std::unordered_set::max_size.

#include <string>
#include <unordered_set>

int main () {
   std::unordered_set<std::string> myset;
   std::cout << "0. size: " << myset.max_size() << std::endl;

   myset = {"milk","potatoes","eggs"};
   std::cout << "1. size: " << myset.max_size() << std::endl;

   myset.insert ("pineapple");
   std::cout << "2. size: " << myset.max_size() << std::endl;

   myset.erase ("milk");
   std::cout << "3. size: " << myset.max_size() << std::endl;

   return 0;
}

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

0. size: 768614336404564650
1. size: 768614336404564650
2. size: 768614336404564650
3. size: 768614336404564650
