Stroustrup's book said that it was accidentally dropped from the standard
and provides an implementation:

  // copy_if was dropped from the standard library by accident.
  template<typename In, typename Out, typename Pred>
  Out copy_if(In first, In last, Out res, Pred Pr)
  {
    while (first != last) {
      if (Pr(*first))
        *res++ = *first;
      ++first;
    }

    return res;
  }
