How do I push vectors by reference?

  • A+

This code below doesn't work because I push_back the vectors a and b to the vector vector and then alter the vectors a and b. I want to alter the vectors a and b so that the vector vector suffers the same modifications. How do I do this?

#include <iostream> #include <vector>  int main() { std::vector<std::vector<int>>vector; std::vector<int>a; std::vector<int>b; vector.push_back(a); vector.push_back(b); for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)     a.push_back(i); for (int i = 11; i <= 20; i++)     b.push_back(i); std::cout << vector[1][0]; std::cin.get(); } 


Create v (vector is not a good name since it shares with the library and makes the code confusing) to be a vector of vector pointers (since a vector of references is not possible):

std::vector<std::vector<int> *> v; //declare as vec of vec pointers ... v.push_back(&a); //push_back addresses of a and b v.push_back(&b); ... std::cout <<>at(0) //dereference and call at on the inner vec
