std::bitset<N>::reference: std::bitset<N>::reference

NAME

std::bitset<N>::reference - std::bitset<N>::reference

Synopsis


class reference;


The std::bitset class includes std::bitset::reference as a publicly-accessible nested class. This class is used as a proxy object to allow users to interact with individual bits of a bitset, since standard C++ types (like references and pointers) are not built with enough precision to specify individual bits.
The primary use of std::bitset::reference is to provide an l-value that can be returned from operator[].
Any reads or writes to a bitset that happen via a std::bitset::reference potentially read or write to the entire underlying bitset.

Member functions


              constructs the reference. Accessible only to std::bitset itself
constructor (private member function)
              destroys the reference
destructor (public member function)
              assigns a bool to the referenced bit
operator= (public member function)
              returns the referenced bit
operator bool (public member function)
              returns inverted referenced bit
operator~ (public member function)
              flips the referenced bit
flip (public member function)


 std::bitset<N>::reference::~reference


~reference();


Destroys the reference.


 std::bitset<N>::reference::operator=


reference& operator=( bool x ); (until C++11)
reference& operator=( bool x ) noexcept; (1) (since C++11)
reference& operator=( const reference& x ); (2) (until C++11)
reference& operator=( const reference& x ) noexcept; (since C++11)


Assigns a value to the referenced bit.

Parameters


x - value to assign

Return value


*this


 std::bitset<N>::reference::operator bool


operator bool() const; (until C++11)
operator bool() const noexcept; (since C++11)


Returns the value of the referenced bit.

Parameters


(none)

Return value


The referenced bit.


 std::bitset<N>::reference::operator~


bool operator~() const; (until C++11)
bool operator~() const noexcept; (since C++11)


Returns the inverse of the referenced bit.

Parameters


(none)

Return value


The inverse of the referenced bit.
