The C++ set::get_allocator function is used to return a copy of allocator object associated with the given set.

Syntax

allocator_type get_allocator() const;
allocator_type get_allocator() const noexcept;

Parameters

None.

Return Value

Returns an allocator associated with the given set.

Time Complexity

Constant i.e, Θ(1).

Example:

In the below example, the set::get_allocator function is used to return a copy of same allocator object used by the set MySet.

#include <iostream>
#include <set>
using namespace std;
 
int main (){
  set<int> MySet;
  int *p;

  //allocate array with a memory to store 5 
  //elements using set's allocator
  p = MySet.get_allocator().allocate(5);

  //construct values in-place on the array
  for(int i=0; i<5; i++)
    MySet.get_allocator().construct(&p[i], 100*(i+1));

  cout<<"The allocated array contains: ";
  for(int i=0; i<5; i++)
    cout<<p[i]<<" ";

  //destroy and deallocate the array
  for(int i=0; i<5; i++)
    MySet.get_allocator().destroy(&p[i]); 
  MySet.get_allocator().deallocate(p,5);

  return 0;
}

The output of the above code will be:

The allocated array contains: 100 200 300 400 500
