iterator_property_map<RandomAccessIterator, OffsetMap, T, R>

This property map is an adaptor that converts any random access iterator into a Lvalue Property Map. The OffsetMap type is responsible for converting key objects to integers that can be used as offsets with the random access iterator.

Where Defined


Model Of

Lvalue Property Map

Template Parameters

Iterator Must be a model of Random Access Iterator.  
OffsetMap Must be a model of Readable Property Map and the value type must be convertible to the difference type of the iterator.  
T The value type of the iterator. std::iterator_traits<RandomAccessIterator>::value_type
R The reference type of the iterator. std::iterator_traits<RandomAccessIterator>::reference


In addition to the methods and functions required by Lvalue Property Map, this class has the following members.

This is the same type as std::iterator_traits<Iterator>::value_type.
iterator_property_map(Iterator i)
Constructor. The OffsetMap is default constructed.
iterator_property_map(Iterator i, OffsetMap m)
reference operator[](const key_type& v) const
The operator bracket for property access. The reference is from std::iterator_traits<Iterator> and the key_type is from boost::property_traits<OffsetMap>.

Non-Member functions

  template <class RAIter, class OffsetMap>
  iterator_property_map<RAIter, OffsetMap,
    typename std::iterator_traits<RAIter>::value_type,
    typename std::iterator_traits<RAIter>::reference
  make_iterator_property_map(RAIter iter, OffsetMap omap)
A function for conveniently creating an iterator map.
  template <class RAIter, class OffsetMap, class ValueType>
  iterator_property_map<RAIter, OffsetMap,
    typename std::iterator_traits<RAIter>::value_type,
    typename std::iterator_traits<RAIter>::reference
  make_iterator_property_map(RAIter iter, OffsetMap omap, ValueType dummy_arg)
Use this function instead of the 2-argument version if your compiler does not support partial specialization (like Visual C++).
