query related to stl vector and set

 can we assign a set to each index of vector. if it is possible how can we do implement this?
i did like this :
vector<set<pair> > vsp;
for i=1 to n
  take set as local variable
  set s;
  insert some values in s;
  and assign this set to vector
but it is giving error.what should i do any help?thanks in advance.

What error are you getting?

is this correct. error is type mismatched in last line vsp[i] = s

You are using set pair,so syntax should be like this vector<set<pair<int,int> > >vsp

i did the same thing but i didn’t mention here sry for that.

Declare like this vsp[1000000]

i already did the same thing. error is type mismatch.error: no match for ‘operator=’ (operand types are ‘std::vector<std::set<std::pair<int, int> > >’ and ‘std::set<std::pair<int, int> >’)
v[i] = s;

error: no match for ‘operator=’ (operand types are ‘std::vector<std::set<std::pair<int, int> > >’ and ‘std::set<std::pair<int, int> >’)
v[i] = s;

@todumanish you have declared set<int,int> s;, I guess this should be like this set<pair<int,int> >s. I don’t know whether this is the mistake but if we assign v[i]=s where s is set<int,int> that would give a error(mismatch).

After declaring,if you want to assign a set s to v[i] just write v[i]=s

thanks for telling me but i already did the same i already edit my question.

Can we assign like this in vectors. I mean v[i] is used to random access the vector elements but I never used it during insertion (i may be wrong). Have you tried push_back or it is required to insert them on specific positions?

You can do that. Take a look.

#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <set>
#include <algorithm>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <cstring>

using namespace std;

vector<set<pair<int, int>>> vsp;
set<pair<int,int>> s;

int main()
    int t;
    //cin >> t;
    t = 5;
    for (int i = 0; i < t; i++)
        for (int j = 0; j < i + 1; j++)
            s.insert(make_pair(j, 2 * j));
    for (auto it : vsp[0])
        cout << it.first << " " << it.second << endl;

I think the problem is in vsp[i]=s part, (as i’th element doesn’t exist) you must use push_back().


@todumanish I tried using v[i] for insertion but it showed an error. This might be the reason that when you assign v[i] to some set (like v[i]=s instead of v.push_back(s)) compiler misunderstand v[i] as an array of vectors and we are assigning something to an element of that means we are assigning a value to a vector (which surely gives and error )

This is same as writing

vectorv; and then v=3;

So it is better to use push_back as @only4 has mentioned in his code.
Does this make sense? Please correct if wrong.

= is assignment operator. Read http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/vector/vector/push_back/

push_back() adds a new element. You can’t assign value until the element is created.

“You can’t assign value until the element is created” True. Thanks now it is clear.

right bro you are correct.

change vector < set < pair< int,int > > > vsp; to vector < set < pair < int,int > > > vsp(n);

and set < int,int > s; to set < pair< int,int > > s;
