How can I properly, and explicitly destroy std vector?
Here is how it is created.
std::vector<std::wstring> vData = StringSplit(sData,L',');// StringSplit returns a vector of wstring
Shortly after using and converting the contents of the container, I no longer need it, or want it hanging around in memory.
I don't want any pointers it may hold (if it does hold them, I don't no the guts of it) or the data in it or any of the elements in it.
The function in which the container is created (or returned to) does not go out of scope until the program ends, and I want to get shut explicitly.
I have searched the web, but all the answers I find are rather ambiguous, with some saying vData.clear() and others saying loop through with vData.erase(...). But the questions asked are rather in explicit too, and I'm finding it difficult to find a difinitive solution.
I appreciate your reading.
