How to get frequency of std:vectors in C++?

I have 5 vectors. I want to check how many times these vectors exist. I used the following code to compare if 2 vectors are equal, but now I have more than 2 vectors. I want to compare all these 5 vectors together and count how many times each vector exists.

How can I do it?

The output should be:

(0,0,1,2,3,0,0,0) = 2 time(s)

(0,0,1,2,3,4,0,0) = 1 time(s)

(0,0,2,4,3,0,0,0) = 1 time(s)

(0,0,6,2,3,5,6,0) = 1 time(s)

Here is my code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
using namespace std;

void checkVec(vector<int> v){
   vector<int> v0;
   if(v0 == v){
      cout << "Equaln";
      cout << "Not Equaln";

int main(){
    vector<int> v1={0,0,1,2,3,0,0,0};
    vector<int> v2={0,0,1,2,3,4,0,0};
    vector<int> v3={0,0,2,4,3,0,0,0};
    vector<int> v4={0,0,1,2,3,0,0,0};
    vector<int> v5={0,0,6,2,3,5,6,0};

    return 0;


You can use std::map counting the number of occurences of each vector:

#include <map>
#include <vector>
#include <iostream>
using vec = std::vector<int>;

int main(){
    vec v1={0,0,1,2,3,0,0,0};
    vec v2={0,0,1,2,3,4,0,0};
    vec v3={0,0,2,4,3,0,0,0};
    vec v4={0,0,1,2,3,0,0,0};
    vec v5={0,0,6,2,3,5,6,0};

    std::map<vec,std::size_t> counter;
    // Initializer list creates copies by default
    // But you should not create vX variables anyway.
    for(const auto& v: {v1,v2,v3,v4,v5}){

    std::cout<<"V1 is present " <<counter[v1]<<" times.n";

    return 0;
V1 is present 2 times.
