binary_compose<AdaptableBinaryFunction,AdaptableUnaryFunction1,AdaptableUnaryFunction2>




Categories: functors, adaptors 
Component type: type 
Description
Binary_compose is a function object adaptor.
If f is an Adaptable Binary Function and g1 and g2 are both
Adaptable Unary Functions, and if g1's and g2's return types
are convertible to f's argument types, then binary_compose can be
used to create a function object h such that h(x) is the same as
f(g1(x), g2(x)). [1]
Example
Finds the first element in a list that lies in the range from 1 to 10.
list<int> L;
...
list<int>::iterator in_range =
find_if(L.begin(), L.end(),
compose2(logical_and<bool>(),
bind2nd(greater_equal<int>(), 1),
bind2nd(less_equal<int>(), 10)));
assert(in_range == L.end()  (*in_range >= 1 && *in_range <= 10));
Computes sin(x)/(x + DBL_MIN) for each element of a range.
transform(first, last, first,
compose2(divides<double>(),
ptr_fun(sin),
bind2nd(plus<double>(), DBL_MIN)));
Definition
Defined in the standard header functional, and in the nonstandard
backwardcompatibility header function.h. The binary_compose
class is an SGI extension; it is not part of the C++ standard.

Description

Default

AdaptableBinaryFunction

The type of the "outer" function in the function composition
operation. That is, if the binary_compose is a function object
h such that h(x) = f(g1(x), g2(x)), then AdaptableBinaryFunction
is the type of f.


AdaptableUnaryFunction1

The type of the first "inner" function in the function composition
operation. That is, if the binary_compose is a function object
h such that h(x) = f(g1(x), g2(x)), then AdaptableBinaryFunction
is the type of g1.


AdaptableUnaryFunction2

The type of the second "inner" function in the function composition
operation. That is, if the binary_compose is a function object
h such that h(x) = f(g1(x), g2(x)), then AdaptableBinaryFunction
is the type of g2.

Description

argument_type

Adaptable Unary Function

The type of the function object's argument:
AdaptableUnaryFunction::argument_type.

result_type

Adaptable Unary Function

The type of the result: AdaptableBinaryFunction::result_type

binary_compose(const AdaptableBinaryFunction& f,
const AdaptableUnaryFunction1& g1,
const AdaptableUnaryFunction1& g2);

Description

binary_compose(const AdaptableBinaryFunction& f,
const AdaptableUnaryFunction1& g1,
const AdaptableUnaryFunction1& g2);

The constructor. Constructs a binary_compose object such that
calling that object with the argument x returns
f(g1(x), g2(x)).

template <class AdaptableBinaryFunction,
class AdaptableUnaryFunction1,
class AdaptableUnaryFunction2>
binary_compose<AdaptableBinaryFunction,
AdaptableUnaryFunction1,
AdaptableUnaryFunction2>
compose2(const AdaptableBinaryFunction&,
const AdaptableUnaryFunction1&,
const AdaptableUnaryFunction2&);

Creates a binary_compose object. If f, g, and g2 are, respectively,
of classes AdaptableBinaryFunction, AdaptableUnaryFunction1, and
AdaptableUnaryFunction2, then compose2(f, g1, g2) is equivalent to
binary_compose<AdaptableBinaryFunction, AdaptableUnaryFunction1,
AdaptableUnaryFunction2>(f, g1, g2), but is more convenient.
This is a global function, not a member function.

Notes
[1]
This is a form of function composition. The unary_compose
adaptor allows composition of Adaptable Unary Functions; note,
however, that once binary functions are introduced, there are several
possible patterns of function composition. The binary_compose
allows you to form a unary function by putting together two unary
functions and a binary function, but you could also, for example,
imagine putting together two unary functions and a binary function to
form a binary function. In that case, f, g1, and g2 would be
combined into a function object h such that h(x,y) = f(g1(x),
g2(y)).
