1-3) Extracts the Ith element from the tuple. I is an integer value in [0, sizeof...(Types)).
4-6) Extracts the element of the tuple t whose type is T. Fails to compile if the tuple has more than one element of that type.

Contents

[edit] Parameters

t - tuple whose contents to extract

[edit] Return value

1,4) Reference to the selected element of t.
2,5) Rvalue reference to the selected element of t, unless the element is of lvalue reference type, in which case lvalue reference is returned.
3,6) Const reference to the selected element of t.

[edit] Exceptions

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <tuple>
 
int main()
{
    auto t = std::make_tuple(1, "Foo", 3.14);
    // index-based access
    std::cout << "(" << std::get<0>(t) << ", " << std::get<1>(t)
              << ", " << std::get<2>(t) << ")\n";
    // type-based access
    std::cout << "(" << std::get<int>(t) << ", " << std::get<const char*>(t)
              << ", " << std::get<double>(t) << ")\n";
}

Output:

(1, Foo, 3.14)
(1, Foo, 3.14)
