std::return_temporary_buffer: std::return_temporary_buffer


std::return_temporary_buffer - std::return_temporary_buffer


Defined in header <memory>
template< class T > (deprecated in C++17)
void return_temporary_buffer( T* p ); (removed in C++20)

Deallocates storage previously allocated with std::get_temporary_buffer.


p - the pointer previously returned by std::get_temporary_buffer and not invalidated by an earlier call to return_temporary_buffer

Return value
