vector


A fixed capacity vector.
STL equivalent: std::vector

etl::vector<typename T, const size_t SIZE>

Inherits from etl::ivector<T>
etl::ivector may be used as a size independent pointer or reference type for any etl::vector instance.

There is a specialisation for pointers that means that just one instantiation of code for all pointer types.
The one caveat is that etl::vector cannot directly store pointers to functions. They must be wrapped in either a custom
struct, one of the etl::function templates, or std::function.

Has the ability to be copied by low level functions such as memcpy by use of a repair() function.
See the function reference for an example of use.

The size of the instance will be (SIZE * sizeof(T)) + (2 * sizeof(size_t)) + sizeof(T*)
For a 32 bit environment the overhead (compared to an array) will usually be 12 bytes.

Member types


value_type              T
size_type               std::size_t
difference_type         std::ptrdiff_t
reference               value_type&
const_reference         const value_type&
pointer                 value_type*
const_pointer           const value_type*

Constructor


etl::vector<typename T, const size_t SIZE>();
etl::vector<typename T, const size_t SIZE>(size_t initialSize);
etl::vector<typename T, const size_t SIZE>(size_t initialSize, parameter_t value);
template <typename TIterator>
etl::vector<typename T, const size_t SIZE>(TIterator begin, TIterator end);

If the vector is full then emits an etl::vector_full. If asserts or exceptions are not enabled then undefined behaviour
occurs.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Element access


T& at(size_t i)
const T& at(size_t i) const

Returns a reference or const reference to the indexed element. Emits an etl::vector_out_of_range if the index is out
of range of the array. If asserts or exceptions are not enabled then undefined behaviour occurs.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

T& operator[](size_t i)
const T& operator[](size_t i) const

Returns a reference or const reference to the indexed element.
if the index is out of range of the array then undefined behaviour occurs.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

T& front()
const T& front() const

Returns a reference or const reference to the first element.
Undefined behaviour if the vector is empty.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

T& back()
const T& back() const

Returns a reference or const reference to the last element.
Undefined behaviour if the vector is empty.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

T* data()
const T* data() const

Returns a pointer or const pointer to the internal buffer.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Iterators


iterator begin()
const_iterator begin() const
const_iterator cbegin() const

Returns an iterator to the beginning of the vector.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

iterator end()
const_iterator end() const
const_iterator cend() const

Returns an iterator to the end of the vector.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

iterator rbegin()
const_reverse_iterator rbegin() const
const_reverse_iterator crbegin() const

Returns a reverse iterator to the beginning of the vector.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

iterator rend()
const_reverse_iterator rend() const
const_reverse_iterator crend() const

Returns a reverse iterator to the end of the vector.


____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Capacity


bool empty() const

Returns true if the size of the vector is zero, otherwise false.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

bool full() const

Returns true if the size of the vector is SIZE, otherwise false.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

size_t size() const

Returns the size of the vector.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

void resize(size_t new_size, T value = T())

Resizes the vector, up to the maximum capacity. Emits an etl::vector_full if the vector does not have the capacity.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

size_t max_size() const

Returns the maximum possible size of the vector.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

size_t capacity() const

Returns the maximum possible size of the vector.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

size_t available() const

Returns the remaining available capacity in the vector.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Modifiers


template <typename TIterator>
void assign(TIterator begin, TIterator end);

void assign(size_t n, parameter_t value);

Fills the vector with the values. Emits etl::vector_iterator if the distance between begin and end is illegal.
(debug mode only). If asserts or exceptions are not enabled undefined behaviour occurs.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

void push_back(parameter_t value);

Pushes a value to the back of the vector.
If the vector is full then emits an etl::vector_full. If asserts or exceptions are not enabled undefined behaviour
occurs.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

void emplace_back(const T1& value1);
void emplace_back(const T1& value1, const T2& value2);
void emplace_back(const T1& value1, const T2& value2, const T3& value3);
void emplace_back(const T1& value1, const T2& value2, const T3& value3, const T4& value4);

Constructs an item at the back of the the vector 'in place'.
Supports up to four constructor parameters.
Pushes a value to the back of the vector. The first pushes a value, the second allocates the new element but does not
initialise it.
If the vector is full then emits an etl::vector_full. If asserts or exceptions are not enabled undefined behaviour
occurs.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

void pop_back();

Pop a value from the back of the vector.
If the vector is empty and ETL_CHECK_PUSH_POP is defined then emits an etl::vector_empty. If asserts or exceptions
are not enabled undefined behaviour occurs.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

template <typename TIterator>
void insert(iterator position, TIterator begin, TIterator end);

iterator insert(iterator position, parameter_t value);
void insert(iterator position, size_t n, parameter_t value);

Inserts values in to the vector.
If the vector is full then emits an etl::vector_full exception. If asserts or exceptions are not enabled undefined
behaviour occurs.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

template <typename TIterator>
iterator erase(TIterator begin, TIterator end);

iterator erase(iterator position);
Erases values in the vector.
Iterators are not checked.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

void clear()
Clears the vector to a size of zero.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

void repair()

This function must be called if the vector has been copied via a low level method such as memcpy.
This can only be called from an etl::vector instance, unless ETL_IVECTOR_REPAIR_ENABLE is defined. Be aware that
doing so introduces a virtual function to the class.

Has no effect if the object has not been copied in this way.

NOTE:
The contained type must be trivially copyable.
Compilers that satisfy the C++11 type traits support check in platform.h will generate an assert if the type is
incompatible.

Example:
typedef etl::vector<int, 10> Data;

Data data(8, 1);

char buffer[sizeof(Data)];

memcpy(&buffer, &data, sizeof(Data));

Data& rdata(*reinterpret_cast<Data*>(buffer));

// Do not access the copied object in any way until you have called this.
rdata.repair();
