unary_negate Class

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

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

template <class Predicate>  
class unary_negate       : public unary_function<typename Predicate::argument_type, bool>     {    public:    explicit unary_negate(const Predicate& _Func);

    bool operator()(const typename Predicate::argument_type& left) const;

 };

Parameters

_Func
The unary function to be negated.

left
The operand of the unary function to be negated.

The negation of the unary function.

The template class stores a copy of a unary function object _ Func. It defines its member function operator() as returning !_ Func(left).

The constructor of unary_negate is rarely used directly. The helper function not1 provides an easier way to declare and use the unary_negator adaptor predicate.
