void make_ready_at_thread_exit( ArgTypes... args ); (since C++11)

Calls the stored task with forwarded args as the arguments. The return value of the task or any exception thrown by it is stored in the shared state of *this.
The shared state is only made ready after the current thread exits and all objects of thread local storage duration are destroyed.


args - the parameters to pass on invocation of the stored task

Return value



std::future_error on the following error conditions:

* The stored task has already been invoked. The error category is set to promise_already_satisfied.
* *this has no shared state. The error category is set to no_state.
