Hello.

If I have something like vector<int>, there is a default allocator given, I know that uses new(), but say I'm creating a new container class, how can I specify to use the default allocator as the STL container classes do?

template<typename TAllocator=???>

Thanks,
Uni

struct MyAllocator // Must model an allocator concept
{
};

template < typename T, typename aT = MyAllocator>
struct MyVector
{
};

But how about if I'm wanting the default allocator provided by the STL - i.e. vector<int> uses new(). How do I go about doing that?

>> vector<int> uses new()
No, vector uses std::allocator

std::vector<T, std::allocator<T> >

template < typename T, typename aT = std::allocator<T> >
struct MyVector
{
};
