The latest version of this topic can be found at minus Struct.

A predefined function object that performs the subtraction operation (binary operator-) on its arguments.

template <class Type = void>
struct minus : public binary_function <Type, Type, Type>  
{
    Type operator()(
    const Type& Left,
    const Type& Right) const;

 };

// specialized transparent functor for operator-
template <>
struct minus<void>  
{
template <class T, class U>
auto operator()(T&& Left, U&& Right) const
 ->  
decltype(std::forward<T>(Left)
 - std::forward<U>(Right));

 };

Parameters

Type, T, U
A type that supports a binary operator- that takes operands of the specified or inferred types.

Left
The left operand of the operation. The unspecialized template takes an lvalue reference argument of type Type. The specialized template does perfect forwarding of lvalue and rvalue reference arguments of inferred type T.

Right
The right operand of the operation. The unspecialized template takes an lvalue reference argument of type Type. The specialized template does perfect forwarding of lvalue and rvalue reference arguments of inferred type U.

The result of Left``-``Right. The specialized template does perfect forwarding of the result, which has the type returned by operator-.

The vector v2 = ( -1 2 5 8 11 14 )  
The element-wise differences between v1 and v2 are: ( 2 3 4 5 6 7 )
