29.7 Numeric arrays [numarray]

29.7.9 Class template indirect_­array [template.indirect.array] indirect_­array assignment [indirect.array.assign]

void operator=(const valarray<T>&) const; const indirect_array& operator=(const indirect_array&) const;

These assignment operators have reference semantics, assigning the values of the argument array elements to selected elements of the valarray<T> object to which it refers.

If the indirect_­array specifies an element in the valarray<T> object to which it refers more than once, the behavior is undefined.


int addr[] = {2, 3, 1, 4, 4};
valarray<size_t> indirect(addr, 5);
valarray<double> a(0., 10), b(1., 5);
a[indirect] = b;

results in undefined behavior since element 4 is specified twice in the indirection. end example]
