erasing out of an vector...
Posted on 2008-06-12
I want to iterate through a vector, process some logic on the items determining whether they still belong in the vector. But I'm having trouble figuring out how.
While iterating through, if it's decided that vector element should be remove, you can't erase it right there, because then you cannot contiue iterating the rest of the vector. You would need to contruct a new vector and start over. I thought about saving the index of the vector item I want to remove and erasing them afterwards, but that wont work becase the the item indices will change after I remove the first one.
Any thoughts on how I can swiftly accomplish this?
