C++ Programming: A Better Vector Trim Algorithm With Move Semantics

Vectors are one of the single most useful and most used objects in the STL. They are easy to use, and remove the burden of memory management from the user. It is possible to partially control memory usage by using functions like reserve, but nothing is provided to free up excess memory.
