where the type aliases iter_key_t, iter_val_t, iter_to_alloc_t are defined as if as follows

template< class InputIt >

using iter_key_t = std::remove_const_t<

                     typename std::iterator_traits<InputIt>::value_type::first_type>;
(exposition only)
template< class InputIt >
using iter_val_t = typename std::iterator_traits<InputIt>::value_type::second_type;
(exposition only)
template< class InputIt >

using iter_to_alloc_t = std::pair<
  std::add_const_t<typename std::iterator_traits<InputIt>::value_type::first_type>,
  typename std::iterator_traits<InputIt>::value_type::second_type

(exposition only)

This deduction guide is provided for multimap to allow deduction from an iterator range (overloads (1,3)) and std::initializer_list (overloads (2,4)). These overloads participate in overload resolution only if InputIt satisfies LegacyInputIterator, Alloc satisfies Allocator, and Comp does not satisfy Allocator.

Note: the extent to which the library determines that a type does not satisfy LegacyInputIterator is unspecified, except that as a minimum integral types do not qualify as input iterators. Likewise, the extent to which it determines that a type does not satisfy Allocator is unspecified, except that as a minimum the member type Alloc::value_type must exist and the expression std::declval<Alloc&>().allocate(std::size_t{}) must be well-formed when treated as an unevaluated operand.

[edit] Example

#include <map>
int main() {
// std::multimap m1 = {{"foo", 1}, {"bar", 2}}; // Error: braced-init-list has no type;
                                                // cannot deduce pair<Key, T> from
                                                // {"foo", 1} or {"bar", 2}
   std::multimap m1 = {std::pair{"foo", 2}, {"bar", 3}}; // guide #2
   std::multimap m2(m1.begin(), m1.end()); // guide #1
