C++ std::rotate_copy with std::vector

This C++ article is about the rotate_copy() algorithm function with std::vector container.
It is an STL algorithm in <algorithm> header file.
Copies the elements in the range [first,last) to the range beginning at result, but rotating the order of the elements in such a way that the element pointed by start becomes the first element in the resulting range.

rotate_copy() has one definition:
template <class ForwardIterator, class OutputIterator>
  OutputIterator rotate_copy (ForwardIterator first, ForwardIterator start,
                              ForwardIterator last, OutputIterator result);

Return type : An output iterator pointing to the end of the copied range.

Working:The rotate_copy( ) function takes 4 parameters, 'first' , 'last' , 'start' and result.Forward iterators to the initial and final positions of the range to be copy-rotated. Forward iterator pointing to the element within the range [first,last) that is copied to the first position in the range.Output iterator to the initial position of the range where the reversed range is stored.


#include <iostream>     // std::cout
#include <algorithm>    // std::rotate_copy
#include <vector>       // std::vector

int main () {
  std::vector<int> element {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9};
  std::vector<int> element_size (element.size());


  // print out content:
  std::cout << "Element contains:";
  for (std::vector<int>::iterator it=element_size.begin(); it!=element_size.end(); ++it)
    std::cout << ' ' << *it;
  std::cout << '\n';

  return 0;

Element contains: 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3
