std::codecvt::always_noconv, do_always_noconv

From cppreference.com
< cpp‎ | locale‎ | codecvt
Defined in header <locale>
public:
bool always_noconv() const;
(1)
protected:
bool do_always_noconv() const;
(2)
1) Public member function, calls the member function do_always_noconv of the most derived class.
2) Returns true if both do_in() and do_out() return std::codecvt_base::noconv for all valid inputs.

[edit] Return value

true if this conversion facet performs no conversions, false otherwise.

The non-converting specialization std::codecvt<char, char, std::mbstate_t> returns true

[edit] Notes

This function may be used e.g. in the implementation of std::basic_filebuf::underflow to use bulk character copy instead of calling std::codecvt::in if it is known that the locale imbued in the std::basic_filebuf does not perform any conversions.

[edit] Exceptions

(none) (until C++11)
noexcept specification:  
noexcept
  
(since C++11)

[edit] Example

#include <locale>
#include <iostream>
 
int main()
{
    std::cout << "The non-converting char<->char codecvt::always_noconv() returns " 
              << std::boolalpha
              << std::use_facet<std::codecvt<char, char, std::mbstate_t>>(
                    std::locale()
                 ).always_noconv() << "\n"
              << "while wchar_t<->char codecvt::always_noconv() returns "
              << std::use_facet<std::codecvt<wchar_t, char, std::mbstate_t>>(
                    std::locale()
                 ).always_noconv() << "\n";
 
}

Output:

The non-converting char<->char codecvt::always_noconv() returns true
while wchar_t<->char codecvt::always_noconv() returns false
