std::unordered_set<Key,Hash,KeyEqual,Allocator>::clear - std::unordered_set<Key,Hash,KeyEqual,Allocator>::clear


void clear() noexcept; (since C++11)

Erases all elements from the container. After this call, size() returns zero.
Invalidates any references, pointers, or iterators referring to contained elements. May also invalidate past-the-end iterators.



Return value



Linear in the size of the container, i.e., the number of elements.
