I am a C++ professional, and have been for many years. Your
rampant condescension is completely uncalled-for.
*You* should learn C++ before coming back with a response
The standard specifies only that, after a re-allocation,
.capacity() >= .size(). It says nothing about specifically
In ANSI ISO/IEC 14882:2003, see 21.3.3/11 for
std::basic_string, 188.8.131.52/2 for std::vector, and you can
look up the rest on your own time.
