How to find common elements between two Vectors using STL in C++?

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this tutorial, we will be discussing a program to understand how to find common elements between two vectors using STL in C++.

To find the common elements between two given vectors we will be using the set_intersetion() method.

Example

 Live Demo

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
int main(){
   //defining the vectors
   vector<int> vector1 = { 1, 45, 54, 71, 76, 12 };
   vector<int> vector2 = { 1, 7, 5, 4, 6, 12 };
   sort(vector1.begin(), vector1.end());
   sort(vector2.begin(), vector2.end());
   cout << "First Vector: ";
   for (int i = 0; i < vector1.size(); i++)
      cout << vector1[i] << " ";
   cout << endl;
   cout << "Second Vector: ";
   for (int i = 0; i < vector2.size(); i++)
      cout << vector2[i] << " ";
   cout << endl;
   vector<int> v(vector1.size() + vector2.size());
   vector<int>::iterator it, st;
   //finding the common elements
   it = set_intersection(vector1.begin(), vector1.end(), vector2.begin(), vector2.end(), v.begin());
   cout << "\nCommon elements:\n";
   for (st = v.begin(); st != it; ++st)
      cout << *st << ", ";
   cout << '\n';
   return 0;
}

Output

First Vector: 1 12 45 54 71 76
Second Vector: 1 4 5 6 7 12
Common elements:
1, 12,
