std::list<T,Allocator>::push_back: std::list<T,Allocator>::push_back


std::list<T,Allocator>::push_back - std::list<T,Allocator>::push_back


void push_back( const T& value ); (1)
void push_back( T&& value ); (2) (since C++11)

Appends the given element value to the end of the container.
1) The new element is initialized as a copy of value.
2) value is moved into the new element.
No iterators or references are invalidated.


value - the value of the element to append

Type requirements

T must meet the requirements of CopyInsertable in order to use overload (1).
T must meet the requirements of MoveInsertable in order to use overload (2).

Return value





If an exception is thrown (which can be due to Allocator::allocate() or element copy/move constructor/assignment), this function has no effect (strong exception guarantee).


// Run this code

  #include <list>
  #include <iostream>
  #include <iomanip>

  int main()
      std::list<std::string> numbers;

      std::string s = "def";

      std::cout << "list holds: ";
      for (auto&& i : numbers) std::cout << std::quoted(i) << ' ';
      std::cout << "\nMoved-from string holds " << std::quoted(s) << '\n';


  list holds: "abc" "def"
  Moved-from string holds ""
