Assigns a new target to std::function.
1) Assigns a copy of target of other, as if by executing function(other).swap(*this);
2) Moves the target of other to *this. other is in a valid state with an unspecified value.
3) Drops the current target. *this is empty after the call.
4) Sets the target of *this to the callable f, as if by executing function(std::forward<F>(f)).swap(*this);.
This operator does not participate in overload resolution unless f is Callable for argument types Args... and return type R.
(since C++14)
5) Sets the target of *this to a copy of f, as if by executing function(f).swap(*this);


other - another std::function object to copy the target of
f - a callable to initialize the target with

Type requirements

F must meet the requirements of Callable.

Return value



Even before allocator support was removed from std::function in C++17, these assignment operators use the default allocator rather than the allocator of *this or the allocator of other (see LWG_#2386).
