An OutputIterator is an Iterator that can write to the pointed-to element.

An example of a type that implements OutputIterator is std::ostream_iterator.

When ForwardIterator, BidirectionalIterator, or RandomAccessIterator satisfies the OutputIterator requirements in addition to its own requirements, it is described as mutable.

Requirements

In addition to the above requirement, for a type It to be an OutputIterator, instances i and o of It must:

Expression Return Equivalent expression Notes
*i = o it may not be possible to write twice in the same iterator
++i It& After this, copies of i may be invalidated.

Post: &r == &++r

i++ const It& It temp = i;

++i;
return temp;

*i++ = o *i = o;

++i;
