Standard library header <any>

< cpp‎ | header

This header is part of the general utility library.


Name Description
Objects that hold instances of any CopyConstructible type.
exception thrown by the value-returning forms of any_cast on a type mismatch


specializes the std::swap algorithm
type-safe access to the contained object
(function template)
