What s the Use of r escape sequence

0 votes

I have C code like this:

#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
    printf("Hey this is my first hello world \r");
    return 0;
}

I conducted an experiment using the r escape sequence. 

I get the following output when I execute the code:

o world

Why is that, and what does r actually do?

If I use an online compiler to run the same code, I get the following results:

Hey this is my first hello world

Why did the online compiler ignore the \r and create different output?

What is the best way to use a HashMap in C++?

The ordered and unordered map containers (std::map and std::unordered map) are included in the standard library.  The items in an ordered map are sorted by key, and insert and access are in O (log n).  For ordered maps, the standard library often use red black trees.  However, this is only an implementation detail.  Insert and access are in O in an unordered map (1).  It is simply another term for a hashtable. An illustration using (ordered) std::map: #include <map> #include <iostream> #include <cassert> int main(int argc, char ...READ MORE
