Defined in header <locale>
const char* scan_not (mask m, const char* beg, const char* end) const;
(1)

Locates the first character in the character array [beg, end) that does not satisfy the classification mask m, that is, the first character c such that table()[(unsigned char)c] & m would return false.

If (unsigned char)c >= std::ctype<char>::table_size, then an implementation-defined value is substituted instead of table()[(unsigned char)c], possibly different for different values of c.

Contents

[edit] Parameters

m - mask to search for
beg - pointer to the first character in an array of characters to search
end - one past the end pointer for the array of characters to search

[edit] Return value

Pointer to the first character in [beg, end) that does not satisfy the mask, or end if no such character was found.

[edit] Notes

Unlike the primary template std::ctype, this specialization does not perform a virtual function call when classifying characters. To customize the behavior, a derived class may provide a non-default classification table to the base class constructor.

[edit] Example

#include <locale>
#include <iostream>
#include <iterator>
 
int main()
{
    auto& f = std::use_facet<std::ctype<char>>(std::locale(""));
 
    // skip leading whitespace
    char s1[] = "      \t\t\n  Test";
    const char* p1 = f.scan_not(std::ctype_base::space, std::begin(s1), std::end(s1));
    std::cout << "'" << p1 << "'\n";
 
    // skip leading digits
    char s2[] = "123456789abcd";
    const char* p2 = f.scan_not(std::ctype_base::digit, std::begin(s2), std::end(s2));
    std::cout << "'" << p2 << "'\n";
}

Output:

'Test'
'abcd'
