In visual C++, I have created a multidimensional vector.  vector<vector<int> > vI(10, vector<int>(3));
I would like to know how to pass this vector to the function below.
=========================================================
void display (vector<vector<int> >& vy)       //vy is instance of int vector
{  for (int i = 0; i < vy.size(); i++)           // loops through each row of vy
   {  for (int j = 0; j < vy[i].size(); j++) // loops through each element of each row
          cout << vy[i][j] << " ";           // prints the jth element of the ith row
      cout << endl;
   }
}

Well, just use

void display (vector<vector<int> >& vy)       //vy is instance of int vector
{  for (int i = 0; i < vy.size(); i++)           // loops through each row of vy
   {  for (int j = 0; j < vy[i].size(); j++) // loops through each element of each row
          cout << vy[i][j] << " ";           // prints the jth element of the ith row
      cout << endl;
   }
}

voif foo()
{
vector<vector<int> > vy;

// fill vector

display(vy);

}

pass it like any other data structure you use.

By using reference :

sign:
void display (vector<vector<int> >& vy)
Call:
display(vy);

By using pointers:
void display (vector<vector<int> >* vy)
Call:
display(&vy);


Hope it helps.

Typedef will make it more clear too.
Have a look at this:
