    resize funtion complexity

    If my string s size is n and I do something like

    s.resize(c); // c < n

    will it take constant time or linear?

    What will it be in case of c > n.

    The size is not the same as capacity.

    If you want to fit the capacity to the contents you'll have to depend on a linear solution or one that isn't portable.
