After the introduction C# After string processing method , Let's talk about it C++ String handling method of .C++ The string processing method for does not C# The convenience of , It doesn't offer a lot of ideas C#
Such a practical function . Existing in the standard library string Type and traditional C String provides greater convenience .

comparison char* String of ,C++ In the standard library string class ,
With don't worry about enough memory , String length and so on , And as a class , He's integrated with enough functions to do most of our work ( Or even 100%) Needs of . We can use  = 
Perform assignment operation ,==  Compare ,+  Make a series ( Is it very simple ?). We can think of it as C++ Basic data types for .

first , For use in our program string type , We must include the header file  . as follows :

#include <string>// Notice it's not here string.h string.h yes C String header file

1.  Declare a C++ character string

It's easy to declare a string variable :string Str;

So we declare a string variable , But since it's a class , There are constructors and destructors . The declaration above has no arguments passed in , So I used it directly string
Default constructor for , What this function does is Str Initialize to an empty string .String The constructors and destructors of the class are as follows :

a)    string s;  // Generate an empty string s

b)    string s(str) // copy constructor   generate str Copy of

c)    string s(str,stridx) // String str within “ From position stridx” As the initial value of the string

d)    string s(str,stridx,strlen) // String str within “ From stridx And the length is at most strlen” As the initial value of the string

e)    string s(cstr) // take C String as s Initial value of

f)    string s(chars,chars_len) // take C Before string chars_len Characters as string s Initial value of .

g)    string s(num,c) // Generate a string , contain num individual c character

h)    string s(beg,end) // By interval beg;end( Not included end) Characters in as strings s Initial value of

i)    s.~string() // Destroy all characters , Free memory

2.  String manipulation function

    Here is C++ Focus of string , I'll list all kinds of operation functions first , People who don't like to read all the functions can find their favorite functions here , I'll see his detailed explanation later .

a) =,assign()   // Assign new value

b) swap()   // Exchange the contents of two strings

c) +=,append(),push_back() // Add character at end

d) insert() // Insert character

e) erase() // Delete character

f) clear() // Delete all characters

g) replace() // Replace character

h) + // Concatenation string

i) ==,!=,<,<=,>,>=,compare()  // Compare strings

j) size(),length()  // Number of return characters

k) max_size() // Return the maximum number of characters possible

l) empty()  // Judge whether the string is empty

m) capacity() // Return the character capacity before reallocation

n) reserve() // Reserve a certain amount of memory to hold a certain number of characters

o) [ ], at() // Access single character

p) >>,getline() // from stream Read a value

q) <<  // Write value stream

r) copy() // Assign a value to a C_string

s) c_str() // Add content to C_string return

t) data() // Return content as a character array

u) substr() // Return a substring

v) Find function

w)begin() end() // Provide similar STL Iterator support for

x) rbegin() rend() // Reverse Iterators

y) get_allocator() // Return to Configurator

Here is a detailed introduction :

3. C++ String and C String conversion

C++ Provided by C++ String to get the corresponding C_string Using the data(),c_str() and copy(), among ,data()
Returns the string contents as an array of characters , But not added ’\0’.c_str() Return to a ‘\0’ Array of characters at the end , and copy() Copy or write the contents of the string to the existing
c_string Or in character array .C++ String does not ’\0’ ending . My suggestion is that it can be used in the program C++ String is used , Unless you have to c_string.

4.  Size and capacity functions

One C++ There are three sizes of strings :a) Existing characters , The function is size() and length(), They are equivalent .Empty() Used to check if the string is empty .
b)max_size()  This size refers to the current C++
The maximum number of characters a string can contain , It is likely to be related to the limitation of the machine itself or the continuous memory size of the string location . We don't usually care about him , It should be big enough for us . But not enough , Will throw
length_error abnormal c)capacity() Before reallocating memory  string Maximum number of characters . Another thing to point out here is reserve() function , This function is
string Reallocate memory . The size of the reallocation is determined by its parameters , The default parameter is 0, It's going to be right string Non mandatory reduction .

It's necessary to repeat C++ String and C Problems in string conversion , Many people will encounter such problems , Self made programs call other people's functions , What kind of ( For example, database connection function
Connect(char*,char*)), But other function parameters use char* Formal , And we know ,c_str(),data()
The returned character array is owned by the string , So it's a const char*, To be an argument to the function mentioned above , You must also copy to a char*, And our principle is not to use it C
String is not used . that , At this time, the way we deal with it is : If this function ( that is char*) If the content of , We can do this
Connect((char*)UserID.c_str(), (char*)PassWD.c_str()),
But there's a danger , Because the converted string can be modified , So I stress that unless the parameters are not modified when the function is called , Otherwise, you must copy to a char*
up . of course , A more secure way is to copy everything to one char* up . And we pray that it's still in use C Experts in string programming
The functions written are relatively standard , So we don't have to force it .

5.  Element access

We can use the subscript operator [] Sum function at() Access the characters contained in the element . But it should be noted that operators [] Does not check whether the index is valid ( Valid index 0~str.length()
), If the index fails , Causes undefined behavior . and at() Will check , If using at() When the index is invalid , Will throw out_of_range abnormal .

There's an exception to that ,const string a; Operators for [] The index value is a.length() Still valid , Its return value is ’\0’. Other situations ,a.length()
Indexes are invalid . For example: :

const string Cstr(“const string”);

string Str(“string”);

Str[3];    //ok;  //ok


Str[100]; // Undefined behavior;  //throw out_of_range


Str[Str.length()]  // Undefined behavior

Cstr[Cstr.length()] // return  ‘\0’;//throw out_of_range ////throw out_of_range

I don't approve of references or pointer assignments like the following :

char& r=s[2];

char* p= &s[3];

Because in the event of reallocation ,r,p Immediate failure . The way to avoid it is not to use it .

6.  Comparison function

C++ String supports common comparison operators (>,>=,<,<=,==,!=), Even support string And C-string Comparison of ( as  str<”hello”). in use
>,>=,<,<= These operators are based on “ Current character properties ”
Compare characters one by one in dictionary order . Small characters before dictionary sorting , The order of comparison is from front to back , When encountering unequal characters, determine the size of the two strings according to the comparison results of the two characters in this position . meanwhile ,

Another powerful comparison function is the member function compare(). He supports multiparameter processing , Support index value and length positioning substring for comparison . He returns an integer to represent the result of the comparison , The meaning of the return value is as follows :
0- equal  〉0- greater than  <0- less than . For example: :

string s(“abcd”);“abcd”); // return 0“dcba”); // Return a less than 0 Value of“ab”); // Return greater than 0 Value of; // equal,2,s,2,2); // use ”ab” and ”cd” Compare   Less than zero,2,”bcx”,2); // use ”bc” and ”bc” compare .

You can also use STL Comparison algorithm of

7.  Change content

This is a large part of string operations .

First of all, assignment , The first method of assignment, of course, uses operators =, The new value can be string( as :s=ns) ,c_string( as :s=”gaint”) Even a single character ( as :s=’j’
). You can also use member functions assign(), This member function allows you to more flexibly assign values to strings . Let's give an example :

s.assign(str); // No

s.assign(str,1,3);// If str yes ”iamangel”  Is to ”ama” Assign to string

s.assign(str,2,string::npos);// String str From index value 2 From beginning to end s

s.assign(“gaint”); // No

s.assign(“nico”,5);// hold ’n’ ‘I’ ‘c’ ‘o’ ‘\0’ Assign to string

s.assign(5,’x’);// Put five x Assign to string

There are three ways to empty a string :s=””;s.clear();s.erase();( More and more, I feel that examples are easier to understand than words !).

string Many functions are provided for insertion (insert), delete (erase), replace (replace), Add character .

First, add characters ( The increase here is on the tail ), Functions have  +=,append(),push_back(). For example: :

s+=str;// Add a string

s+=”my name is jiayp”;// Add one C character string

s+=’a’;// Add characters



s.append(str,1,3);// No explanation   Same as previous function parameters assign Interpretation of

s.append(str,2,string::npos)// No explanation


s.append(“my name is jiayp”);




String manipulation is a big topic , In standard C++ in ,string String class becomes a standard , Why abandon char* String of C++ In the standard library string
class , It's because he's compared to the former , Don't worry about enough memory , String length and so on , And as a class , His integrated operation function is enough to fulfill our needs in most cases .
