Check if element found in array c++

The Solution to Check if element found in array c++ is


In C++ you would use std::find, and check if the resultant pointer points to the end of the range, like this:

Foo array[10];
... // Init the array here
Foo *foo = std::find(std::begin(array), std::end(array), someObject);
// When the element is not found, std::find returns the end of the range
if (foo != std::end(array)) {
    cerr << "Found at position " << std::distance(array, foo) << endl;
} else {
    cerr << "Not found" << endl;
}
