Subject test for lib.alg.partitions
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2006 16:30:58 GMT
The attached file contains my attempt to update lib.alg.partiton and
lib.alg.stable_partiton tests and port them to new test driver.

I suspect a bug in the stable_partiton algorithm implementation.
Suppose that for all elements of an array the predicate is true.
The stable_partition should return "last" in this case.
But call of the stable_partiton on this array fails with the following
    stdlib\tests\src\alg_test.cpp:135: __thiscall X::~X(void):
Assertion 'id_ && id_ <= id_gen_' failed.
In the debugger you can see that the id_ of the deleting X object is
equal to 0 (I suppose that this X is invalid), but the "this" looks
What do you think about this issue?

I plan investigate this more deeply.
Current test version includes the tests on which stable_partiton fails
and these tests are marked using comments.

Also, there is another intresting thing with the stable_partition
Suppose that an array contains only one element. According to the
standard the complexity in this case should be equal to 0 swaps. Actually
there are 0 swaps, but there is 1 assignment. I guess this is not a bug
(the standard talks nothing about the assignments), but may be there are
unnecessary assignment operations in the stable_partitions
What do you think about it?

With best wishes,
Anton Pevtsov
