Using algorithms, C++ developers can shrink their code to just a few lines in cases where complicated loops would otherwise be required. In this video, Jason Turner explains where the set_intersection algorithm can be employed to handle array comparisons. Following along in Compiler Explorer, intermediate C++ developers will walk away with an expanded algorithm toolkit, having learned the best practices associated with set_intersection.
