Remove whitespace from string c++

Remove whitespace from string c++


Remove whitespace from string c++ :- 

The best thing to do is to use the algorithm remove_if and isspace:

remove_if(str.begin(), str.end(), isspace);

Now the algorithm itself can’t change the container(only modify the values), so it actually shuffles the values around and returns a pointer to where the end now should be. So we have to call string::erase to actually modify the length of the container:

str.erase(remove_if(str.begin(), str.end(), isspace), str.end());

We should also note that remove_if will make at most one copy of the data. Here is a sample implementation:

template<typename T, typename P>
T remove_if(T beg, T end, P pred)
{
T dest = beg;
for (T itr = beg;itr != end; ++itr)
if (!pred(*itr))
*(dest++) = *itr;
return dest;
}
*****************************************************
std::string::iterator end_pos = std::remove(str.begin(), str.end(), ‘ ‘);
str.erase(end_pos, str.end());
