std::reference_wrapper<T>::reference_wrapper: std::reference_wrapper<T>::reference_wrapper


std::reference_wrapper<T>::reference_wrapper - std::reference_wrapper<T>::reference_wrapper


template< class U > (1)
reference_wrapper( U&& x ) noexcept(/*see below*/) ;
reference_wrapper( const reference_wrapper& other ) noexcept; (2)

Constructs a new reference wrapper.
1) Converts x to T& as if by T& t = std::forward<U>(x);, then stores a reference to t. This overload only participates in overload resolution if typename std::decay<U>::type is not the same type as reference_wrapper and the expression FUN(std::declval<U>()) is well-formed, where FUN names the set of imaginary functions

  void FUN(T&) noexcept;
  void FUN(T&&) = delete;

2) Copy constructor. Stores a reference to other.get().


x - an object to wrap
other - another reference wrapper


noexcept specification:
where FUN is the set of imaginary functions described in the description above.
