shared_ptr::operator boolean-type


Tests if an owned resource exists.

operator boolean-type() const;

The operator returns a value of a type that is convertible to bool. The result of the conversion to bool is true when get() != 0, otherwise false.



// std_tr1__memory__shared_ptr_operator_bool.cpp 
// compile with: /EHsc 
#include <memory> 
#include <iostream> 

int main() 
    std::shared_ptr<int> sp0; 
    std::shared_ptr<int> sp1(new int(5)); 

    std::cout << "(bool)sp0 == " << std::boolalpha 
        << (bool)sp0 << std::endl; 
    std::cout << "(bool)sp1 == " << std::boolalpha 
        << (bool)sp1 << std::endl; 

    return (0); 

(bool)sp0 == false
(bool)sp1 == true
