[edit] Parameters

(none)

[edit] Return value

true if *this owns an object, false otherwise.

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <memory>
 
int main()
{
    std::unique_ptr<int> ptr(new int(42));
 
    if (ptr) std::cout << "before reset, ptr is: " << *ptr << '\n';
    ptr.reset();
    if (ptr) std::cout << "after reset, ptr is: " << *ptr << '\n';
}

Output:

before reset, ptr is: 42
