std::set is an associative container that contains a sorted set of unique objects of type Key. Sorting is done using the key comparison function Compare. Search, removal, and insertion operations have logarithmic complexity. Sets are usually implemented as red-black trees.

std::set meets the requirements of Container, AllocatorAwareContainer, AssociativeContainer and ReversibleContainer.

[edit] Notes

The member types iterator and const_iterator may be aliases to the same type. Since iterator is convertible to const_iterator, const_iterator should be used in function parameter lists to avoid violations of the One Definition Rule.
