template< class... Args >
std::pair<iterator,bool> emplace( Args&&... args );
(since C++11)

Inserts a new element into the container by constructing it in-place with the given args if there is no element with the key in the container.

Careful use of emplace allows the new element to be constructed while avoiding unnecessary copy or move operations. The constructor of the new element is called with exactly the same arguments as supplied to emplace, forwarded via std::forward<Args>(args)....

If rehashing occurs due to the insertion, all iterators are invalidated. Otherwise iterators are not affected. References are not invalidated. Rehashing occurs only if the new number of elements is greater than max_load_factor()*bucket_count().


[edit] Parameters

args - arguments to forward to the constructor of the element

[edit] Return value

Returns a pair consisting of an iterator to the inserted element, or the already-existing element if no insertion happened, and a bool denoting whether the insertion took place.

[edit] Exceptions

If an exception is thrown by any operation, this function has no effect.

[edit] Complexity

Amortized constant on average, worst case linear in the size of the container.
