std::experimental::apply (3) - Linux Man Pages

std::experimental::apply: std::experimental::apply


std::experimental::apply - std::experimental::apply


Defined in header <experimental/tuple>
template <class F, class Tuple> (library fundamentals TS)
constexpr decltype(auto) apply(F&& f, Tuple&& t);

Invoke the Callable object f with a tuple of arguments.


f - Callable object to be invoked
t - tuple whose elements to be used as arguments to f

Return value

What returned by f.

Possible implementation

  namespace detail {
  template <class F, class Tuple, std::size_t... I>
  constexpr decltype(auto) apply_impl( F&& f, Tuple&& t, std::index_sequence<I...> )
    return std::invoke(std::forward<F>(f), std::get<I>(std::forward<Tuple>(t))...);
    // Note: std::invoke is a C++17 feature
  } // namespace detail

  template <class F, class Tuple>
  constexpr decltype(auto) apply(F&& f, Tuple&& t)
      return detail::apply_impl(std::forward<F>(f), std::forward<Tuple>(t),


// Run this code

  #include <iostream>
  #include <tuple>

  template<typename... Ts>
  void print_tuple (const std::tuple<Ts...> &tuple)
      std::apply ([] (const auto &... elem)
                      ((std::cout << elem << '\n'), ...);

  int main() {
      const std::tuple<int, char> t = std::make_tuple(5, 'a');
