The C++ function std::vector::insert() extends vector by inserting new element in the container. Reallocation happens if there is need of more space

This function increases container size bye one.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for std::vector::insert() function form std::vector header.

C++11

iterator insert (const_iterator position, value_type&& val);

Parameters

  • position − Index in the vector where new element to be inserted.

  • value − Value to be assigned to newly inserted element.

Linear i.e. O(n)

Example

The following example shows the usage of std::vector::insert() function.

#include <iostream>
#include <vector>

using namespace std;

int main(void) {
   vector<int> v1 = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
   vector<int> v2;

   for (int i = 0; i < v1.size(); ++i)
      v2.insert(v2.begin() + i, move(*(v1.begin() + i)));

   for (int i = 0; i < v2.size(); ++i)
      cout << v2[i] << endl;

   return 0;
}

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