Date: 2008oct1 Language: C/C++ Keywords: Standard Template Library Q. What's up with sorting in STL? A. I am sure there is a reason but it seems inconsistent to me. To sort a vector:#include <vector> #include <algorithm> std::vector<int> a; a.push_back(3); a.push_back(2); a.push_back(1); std::sort(a); // Use sort() from algorithm!To sort a list:#include <list> std::list<int> b; b.push_back(3); b.push_back(2); b.push_back(1); b.sort(); // Use the sort member!Perhaps this is because its easy to reorder elements in a list but not a vector.
