std::not1: std::not1


std::not1 - std::not1


Defined in header <functional>
template< class Predicate > (until C++14)
std::unary_negate<Predicate> not1(const Predicate& pred);
template< class Predicate > (since C++14)
constexpr std::unary_negate<Predicate> not1(const Predicate& pred); (deprecated in C++17)
                                                                     (removed in C++20)

not1 is a helper function to create a function object that returns the complement of the unary predicate function passed. The function object created is of type std::unary_negate<Predicate>.
The unary predicate type must define a member type, argument_type, that is convertible to the predicate's parameter type. The unary function objects obtained from std::ref, std::cref, std::negate, std::logical_not, std::mem_fn, std::function, std::hash, or from another call to std::not1 have this type defined, as are function objects derived from the deprecated std::unary_function.


pred - unary predicate

Return value

std::not1 returns an object of type std::unary_negate<Predicate>, constructed with pred.
