I have 2 vectors with the same elements:
vector1 { ID, name, phone }
vector2 { ID, name, phone }
and 1 vector which conisists of both elementS from vector1 and vector2
vector3 {ID1, ID2, name, phone1, phone2}
I want to find if the element "name" in these vector1 and vector2 are equal
if vector 1 contain an element:
ID[1], name[Grace], phone[12345]
and vector 2 also contain an element:
ID[4], name[Grace], phone[99999]
I will add a new element in vector3, i.e.
ID[1], ID[2], name[Grace], phone[12345], phone[99999].
Are there any function in vector can do these in an more effiecient way ?
