Defined in header <type_traits>
template< class T                     (1) (since C++11)
struct is_move_constructible;
template< class T                     (2) (since C++11)
struct is_trivially_move_constructible;
template< class T                     (3) (since C++11)
struct is_nothrow_move_constructible;

1) If T is not a referenceable type (i.e., possibly cv-qualified void or a function
type with a cv-qualifier-seq or a ref-qualifier), provides a member constant value
equal to false. Otherwise, provides a member constant value equal to
std::is_constructible<T, T&&>::value.

2) Same as (1), but uses std::is_trivially_constructible<T, T&&>.

3) Same as (1), but uses std::is_nothrow_constructible<T, T&&>.

T shall be a complete type, (possibly cv-qualified) void, or an array of unknown
bound. Otherwise, the behavior is undefined.

If an instantiation of a template above depends, directly or indirectly, on an
incomplete type, and that instantiation could yield a different result if that type
were hypothetically completed, the behavior is undefined.

Possible implementation

  struct is_move_constructible :
  std::is_constructible<T, typename std::add_rvalue_reference<T>::type> {};

  template<class T>
  struct is_trivially_move_constructible :
 std::is_trivially_constructible<T, typename std::add_rvalue_reference<T>::type> {};

  template<class T>
  struct is_nothrow_move_constructible :
 std::is_nothrow_constructible<T, typename std::add_rvalue_reference<T>::type> {};


Types without a move constructor, but with a copy constructor that accepts const T&
arguments, satisfy std::is_move_constructible.

Move constructors are usually noexcept, since otherwise they are unusable in any
code that provides strong exception guarantee.

In many implementations, is_nothrow_move_constructible also checks if the destructor
throws because it is effectively noexcept(T(arg)). Same applies to
is_trivially_move_constructible, which, in these implementations, also requires that
the destructor is trivial: GCC bug 51452 LWG issue 2116.
