bool empty() const;

Checks if the container has no elements, i.e. whether begin() == end().

Contents

Parameters

(none)

Return value

true if the container is empty, false otherwise

Exceptions

(none) (until C++11)
noexcept specification:  
noexcept
  
(since C++11)

Complexity

Constant.

Example

The following code uses empty to check if a std::set<int> contains any elements:

#include <set>
#include <iostream>
 
int main()
{
    std::set<int> numbers;
    std::cout << "Initially, numbers.empty(): " << numbers.empty() << '\n';
 
    numbers.insert(42);
    numbers.insert(13317); 
    std::cout << "After adding elements, numbers.empty(): " << numbers.empty() << '\n';
}

Output:

Initially, numbers.empty(): 1
After adding elements, numbers.empty(): 0
