I just wrote a small helper function to clear a container. Well, OK, we
already have that, do we? For a container 'cont':
But this doesn't neccessarily free the memory allocated. The "usual"
Cont().swap( cont );
But Cont (the type of the container) is sometimes rather large and the
code doesn't communicate well what I intended.
I thus wrote the following small helper:
template< typename T > void reset( T& t )
T().swap( t );
Would this make a good addition to boost.utility? Any comments welcome...
