std::pmr::polymorphic_allocator<T>::allocate_bytes: std::pmr::polymorphic_allocator<T>::allocate_bytes


std::pmr::polymorphic_allocator<T>::allocate_bytes - std::pmr::polymorphic_allocator<T>::allocate_bytes


void* allocate_bytes( std::size_t nbytes, (since C++20)
std::size_t alignment = alignof(std::max_align_t) );

Allocates nbytes bytes of storage at specified alignment alignment using the underlying memory resource. Equivalent to return resource()->allocate(nbytes, alignment);


nbytes - the number of bytes to allocate
alignment - the alignment to use

Return value

A pointer to the allocated storage.


This function was introduced for use with the fully-specialized allocator std::polymorphic_allocator<>, but it may be useful in any specialization.
The return type is void* (rather than, e.g., std::byte*) to support conversion to an arbitrary pointer type U* by static_cast<U*>.


May throw any exceptions thrown by the call to resource()->allocate.
