std::back_insert_iterator is an OutputIterator that appends to a container for which it was constructed. The container's push_back() member function is called whenever the iterator (whether dereferenced or not) is assigned to. Incrementing the std::back_insert_iterator is a no-op.

Example

#include <iostream>
#include <iterator>
#include <algorithm>
#include <cstdlib>
 
int main()
{
    std::vector<int> v;
    std::generate_n(std::back_insert_iterator<std::vector<int>>(v), // can be simplified
                    10, [](){ return std::rand() % 10; });        // with std::back_inserter
    for (int n : v)
        std::cout << n << ' ';
    std::cout << '\n';
}

Output:

3 6 7 5 3 5 6 2 9 1
