# find_end

Searches for the last occurrence of a subrang View version details

### Key Facts

Gyroscopic Couple: The rate of change of angular momentum () = (In the limit).
• = Moment of Inertia.
• = Angular velocity
• = Angular velocity of precession.

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a French mathematician, physicist, inventor, writer and Catholic philosopher.

Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) was a pioneering Swiss mathematician and physicist.

## Definition

The find_end() algorithm is defined in the standard header <algorithm> and in the nonstandard backward-compatibility header <algo.h>.

## Interface

#include <algorithm>
template < class ForwardIterator1, class ForwardIterator2 >
ForwardIterator1 find_end(
ForwardIterator1 first1,
ForwardIterator1 last1,
ForwardIterator2 first2,
ForwardIterator2 last2
);
template < class ForwardIterator1, class ForwardIterator2, class Pr >
ForwardIterator1 find_end(
ForwardIterator1 first1,
ForwardIterator1 last1,
ForwardIterator2 first2,
ForwardIterator2 last2,
BinaryPredicate comp
);

Parameters:

Parameter Description
first1 A forward iterator addressing the position of the first element in the range to be searched
last1 A forward iterator addressing the position one past the final element in the range to be searched
first2 A forward iterator addressing the position of the first element in the range to be searched
last2 A forward iterator addressing the position one past the final element in the range to be searched
comp User-defined predicate function object that defines the condition to be satisfied if two elements are to be taken as equivalent. A binary predicate takes two arguments and returns true when satisfied and false when not satisfied

## Description

Find_end fi nds the last subsequence (elements between fi rst2 and last2) contained into a sequence (elements between first1 and last1 ).

## Return Value

Returns a forward iterator addressing the position of the first element of the last subsequence that matches the specified sequence or that is equivalent in a sense specified by a binary predicate.

## Complexity

The complexity is linear, find_end performs at most (last1 - first1) * (last2 - first2) comparisons.

Problem
This program illustrates the use of the STL find_end() algorithm (default version) to find the last occurrence of one range of integer values in a vector within another range of integer values, also in a vector.
Workings
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <algorithm>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
int a1[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11};
vector<int> v1(a1, a1+14);
cout <<"\nHere are the contents of v1:\n";
for (vector<int>::size_type i=0; i<v1.size(); i++)
cout <<v1.at(i)<<" ";

int a2[] = {3, 4, 5};
vector<int> v2(a2, a2+3);
cout <<"\nHere are the contents of v2:\n";
for (vector<int>::size_type i=0; i<v2.size(); i++)
cout <<v2.at(i)<<" ";

vector<int>::iterator p;

p = find_end(v1.begin(), v1.end(), v2.begin(), v2.end());
if (p != v1.end())
cout <<"\nThe last instance of v2 in v1 begins at location "
<<(int)(p-v1.begin()+1)<<".";
else
cout <<"\nNo instance of v2 was found in v1.";

return 0;
}
Solution
Output:

Here are the contents of v1:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 3 4 5 9 10 11

Here are the contents of v2:
3 4 5

The last instance of v2 in v1 begins at location 9.
