Defined in header <algorithm>
template< class ForwardIt1, class ForwardIt2 >
ForwardIt2 swap_ranges( ForwardIt1 first1, ForwardIt1 last1, ForwardIt2 first2 );
(1)
template< class ExecutionPolicy, class ForwardIt1, class ForwardIt2 >
ForwardIt2 swap_ranges( ExecutionPolicy&& policy, ForwardIt1 first1, ForwardIt1 last1, ForwardIt2 first2 );
(2) (since C++17)
1) Exchanges elements between range [first1, last1) and another range starting at first2.
2) Same as (1), but executed according to policy. This overload does not participate in overload resolution unless std::is_execution_policy_v<std::decay_t<ExecutionPolicy>> is true

Contents

[edit] Parameters

first1, last1 - the first range of elements to swap
first2 - beginning of the second range of elements to swap
policy - the execution policy to use. See execution policy for details.
Type requirements
-
ForwardIt1, ForwardIt2 must meet the requirements of ForwardIterator.
-
The types of dereferenced ForwardIt1 and ForwardIt2 must meet the requirements of Swappable

[edit] Return value

Iterator to the element past the last element exchanged in the range beginning with first2.

[edit] Exceptions

The overload with a template parameter named ExecutionPolicy reports errors as follows:

  • If execution of a function invoked as part of the algorithm throws an exception,
  • if policy is std::parallel_vector_execution_policy, std::terminate is called
  • if policy is std::sequential_execution_policy or std::parallel_execution_policy, the algorithm exits with an std::exception_list containing all uncaught exceptions. If there was only one uncaught exception, the algorithm may rethrow it without wrapping in std::exception_list. It is unspecified how much work the algorithm will perform before returning after the first exception was encountered.
  • if policy is some other type, the behavior is implementation-defined
  • If the algorithm fails to allocate memory (either for itself or to construct an std::exception_list when handling a user exception), std::bad_alloc is thrown.

[edit] Possible implementation

template<class ForwardIt1, class ForwardIt2>
ForwardIt2 swap_ranges(ForwardIt1 first1, 
                             ForwardIt1 last1, 
                             ForwardIt2 first2)
{
    while (first1 != last1) {
        std::iter_swap(first1++, first2++);
    }
    return first2;
}

[edit] Example

Demonstrates swapping of subranges from different containers

#include <algorithm>
#include <list>
#include <vector>
#include <iostream>
int main()
{
    std::vector<int> v = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
    std::list<int> l = {-1, -2, -3, -4, -5};
 
    std::swap_ranges(v.begin(), v.begin()+3, l.begin());
 
    for(int n : v)
       std::cout << n << ' ';
    std::cout << '\n';
    for(int n : l)
       std::cout << n << ' ';
    std::cout << '\n';
}

Output:

-1 -2 -3 4 5
1 2 3 -4 -5

[edit] Complexity

linear in the distance between first and last
