std::experimental::nullopt_t is an empty class type used to indicate optional type with uninitialized state. In particular, std::experimental::optional has a constructor with nullopt_t as a single argument, which creates an optional that does not contain a value.

std::experimental::nullopt_t must be a LiteralType and cannot have a default constructor.

It must have a constexpr constructor that takes some implementation-defined literal type.

[edit] Notes

nullopt_t is not DefaultConstructible to support both op = {}; and op = nullopt; as the syntax for disengaging an optional object.

A possible implementation of this class is

struct nullopt_t
    constexpr nullopt_t(int) {}
