std::piecewise_construct: std::piecewise_construct


std::piecewise_construct - std::piecewise_construct


constexpr piecewise_construct_t piecewise_construct (since C++11)
= std::piecewise_construct_t(); (until C++17)
inline constexpr piecewise_construct_t piecewise_construct (since C++17)
= std::piecewise_construct_t();

The constant std::piecewise_construct is an instance of an empty struct tag type std::piecewise_construct_t.


// Run this code

  #include <iostream>
  #include <utility>
  #include <tuple>

  struct Foo {
      Foo(std::tuple<int, float>)
          std::cout << "Constructed a Foo from a tuple\n";
      Foo(int, float)
          std::cout << "Constructed a Foo from an int and a float\n";

  int main()
      std::tuple<int, float> t(1, 3.14);
      std::pair<Foo, Foo> p1(t, t);
      std::pair<Foo, Foo> p2(std::piecewise_construct, t, t);
