## Function Documentation

template<typename _BidirectionalIterator , typename _Compare >
 void std::inplace_merge ( _BidirectionalIterator __first, _BidirectionalIterator __middle, _BidirectionalIterator __last, _Compare __comp ) [inline]

Merges two sorted ranges in place.

Parameters:
 first An iterator. middle Another iterator. last Another iterator. comp A functor to use for comparisons.
Returns:
Nothing.
Merges two sorted and consecutive ranges, [first,middle) and [middle,last), and puts the result in [first,last). The output will be sorted. The sort is stable, that is, for equivalent elements in the two ranges, elements from the first range will always come before elements from the second.

If enough additional memory is available, this takes (last-first)-1 comparisons. Otherwise an NlogN algorithm is used, where N is distance(first,last).

The comparison function should have the same effects on ordering as the function used for the initial sort.
