binary_negate Class

A template class providing a member function that negates the return value of a specified binary function.

template<class Operation> 
   class binary_negate 
      : public binary_function < 
         typename Operation::first_argument_type, 
         typename Operation::second_argument_type,  
         bool>  
   { 
   public: 
   explicit binary_negate( 
      const Operation& _Func 
   ); 
   bool operator()( 
      const typename Operation::first_argument_type& _Left, 
      const typename Operation::second_argument_type& _Right 
   ) const; 
   };

_Func

The binary function to be negated.

_Left

The left operand of the binary function to be negated.

_Right

The right operand of the binary function to be negated.

The negation of the binary function.

The template class stores a copy of a binary function object _Func. It defines its member function operator() as returning !_Func(_Left, _Right).

The constructor of binary_negate is rarely used directly. The helper function not2 is usually preferred to declare and use the binary_negator adaptor predicate.
