function Class

Wrapper for a callable object.

template<class Fty>
   class function  // Fty of type Ret(T1, T2, ..., TN)
   : public unary_function<T1, Ret>       // when Fty is Ret(T1)
   : public binary_function<T1, T2, Ret>  // when Fty is Ret(T1, T2)
   {
public:
   typedef Ret result_type;

   function();
   function(nullptr_t);
   function(const function& _Right);

   const std::type_info& target_type() const;
   template<class Fty2>
      Fty2 *target();
   template<class Fty2>
      const Fty2 *target() const;

};

Fty

The function type to wrap.

_Ax

The allocator function.

The template class is a call wrapper whose call signature is Ret(T1, T2, ..., TN). You use it to enclose a variety of callable objects in a uniform wrapper.

Some member functions take an operand that names the desired target object. You can specify such an operand in several ways:

fn -- the callable object fn; after the call the function object holds a copy of fn

fnref -- the callable object named by fnref.get(); after the call the function object holds a reference to fnref.get()

right -- the callable object, if any, held by the function object right

npc -- a null pointer; after the call the function object is empty

In all cases, INVOKE(f, t1, t2, ..., tN), where f is the callable object and t1, t2, ..., tN are lvalues of types T1, T2, ..., TN respectively, must be well-formed and, if Ret is not void, convertible to Ret.

An empty function object does not hold a callable object or a reference to a callable object.

function::function

Constructs a wrapper that either is empty or stores a callable object of arbitrary type with a fixed signature.

function::result_type

The return type of the stored callable object.

function::assign

Assigns a callable object to this function object.

function::swap

Swap two callable objects.

function::target

Tests if stored callable object is callable as specified.

function::target_type

Gets type information on the callable object.

function::operator unspecified

Tests if stored callable object exists.

function::operator()

Calls a callable object.

function::operator=

Replaces the stored callable object.
