    STL algorithm question

    Does anyone know what algorithm or member function to use that returns a true or false if a container contains a specified item?

    Something like:

    if (contains(myVec,"John"))
    cout<<"MyVec contains the name John!"<<endl;

    Assuming your container can test for strings:
    Code:
    if (find(myVec.begin(), myVec.end(), "John") != myVec.end())
    p.s. What the alphabet would look like without q and r.
