From cppreference.com
bool empty() const noexcept;
(since C++11)
(until C++20)
[[nodiscard]] bool empty() const noexcept;
(since C++20)

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

Contents

[edit] Parameters

(none)

[edit] Return value

true if the container is empty, false otherwise

[edit] Complexity

Constant.

[edit] Example

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

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

Output:

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