< cpp‎ | utility‎ | optional
Defined in header <optional>
template<class T>
optional(T) -> optional<T>;
(since C++17)

One deduction guide is provided for std::optional to account for the edge cases missed by the implicit deduction guides, in particular, non-copyable arguments and array to pointer conversion


#include <optional>
int main()
    int a[2];
    std::optional oa{a}; // explicit deduction guide is used in this case
