Perhaps you could tell us what 'yN' is and what you consider "fast".
By "Set" or "set" do you mean 'std::set' or something else? Is your
question about C++ language or about a general programming technique?

How fast does it need to be?
How many times will the statement be calculated?
Is the program in a real-time scenario?
Why does it need to be done faster than the usual
distance formula?

As an intellectual exercise, I've implemented an STL-esque List<and List<>::Iterator. Now, I would like a signed distance between two iterators which corresponds to their relative position in the list. For instance, if I did something like distance(list.end(), list.begin()), I would get -list.size(). The STL's iterator distance function amounts to something like this: distance_type distance(Iterator first, Iterator last) {...

Hi A problem with trying to find the nearest colour. I have an image which I use GetPixel to return the colour of various points. However .... not all colours returned will be a System/Known/Pre- defined colour.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
