template< class InputIt, class ForwardIt >
ForwardIt uninitialized_move( InputIt first, InputIt last, ForwardIt d_first );
(1) (since C++17)
template< class ExecutionPolicy, class InputIt, class ForwardIt >
ForwardIt uninitialized_move( ExecutionPolicy&& policy, InputIt first, InputIt last, ForwardIt d_first );
(2) (since C++17)
1) Moves elements from the range [first, last) to an uninitialized memory area beginning at d_first as if by
for (; first != last; ++d_first, (void) ++first)
   ::new (static_cast<void*>(std::addressof(*d_first)))
      typename std::iterator_traits<ForwardIt>::value_type(std::move(*first));
If an exception is thrown during the initialization, some objects in [first, last) are left in a valid but unspecified state.
2) Same as (1), but executed according to policy. This overload does not participate in overload resolution unless std::is_execution_policy_v<std::decay_t<ExecutionPolicy>> is true

Contents

[edit] Parameters

first, last - the range of the elements to move
d_first - the beginning of the destination range
policy - the execution policy to use. See execution policy for details.
Type requirements
-
InputIt must meet the requirements of InputIterator.
-
ForwardIt must meet the requirements of ForwardIterator.
-
No increment, assignment, comparison, or indirection through valid instances of ForwardIt may throw exceptions.

[edit] Return value

Iterator to the element past the last element moved.

[edit] Complexity

Linear in the distance between first and last

[edit] Exceptions

The overload with a template parameter named ExecutionPolicy reports errors as follows:

  • If execution of a function invoked as part of the algorithm throws an exception and ExecutionPolicy is one of the three standard policies, std::terminate is called. For any other ExecutionPolicy, the behavior is implementation-defined.
  • If the algorithm fails to allocate memory, std::bad_alloc is thrown.

[edit] Possible implementation

template<class InputIt, class ForwardIt>
ForwardIt uninitialized_move(InputIt first, InputIt last, ForwardIt d_first)
{
    typedef typename std::iterator_traits<ForwardIt>::value_type Value;
    ForwardIt current = d_first;
    try {
        for (; first != last; ++first, (void) ++current) {
            ::new (static_cast<void*>(std::addressof(*current))) Value(std::move(*first));
        }
        return current;
    } catch (...) {
        for (; d_first != current; ++d_first) {
            d_first->~Value();
        }
        throw;
    }
}
