#include <memory> 
#include <iostream> 
 
int main() 
{ 
    auto sp1 = std::make_shared<int>(5);
    std::cout << std::boolalpha;
    std::cout << "sp1.unique() == " << sp1.unique() << '\n'; 
 
    std::shared_ptr<int> sp2 = sp1; 
    std::cout << "sp1.unique() == " << sp1.unique() << '\n'; 
}

Output:

sp1.unique() == true
sp1.unique() == false
