Specifies that an instance of the type can be assigned from an rvalue argument.

[edit] Requirements

The type T satisfies MoveAssignable if

Given

The following expressions must be valid and have their specified effects

Expression Return type Return value Post-conditions
t = rv T& t The value of t is equivalent to the value of rv before the assignment.

The new value of rv is unspecified

[edit] Notes

The type does not have to implement move assignment operator in order to satisfy this type requirement: a copy assignment operator that takes its parameter by value or as a const Type&, will bind to rvalue argument.

If a MoveAssignable class implements a move assignment operator, it may also implement move semantics to take advantage of the fact that the value of rv after assignment is unspecified.
