(5) (since C++11)

Replaces the managed object with the one managed by r. The object is shared with r. If r manages no object, *this manages no object too.

1-3) Equivalent to std::weak_ptr<T>(r).swap(*this).
4,5) Equivalent to std::weak_ptr<T>(std::move(r)).swap(*this).

[edit] Parameters

r - smart pointer to share an object with

[edit] Return value

*this

[edit] Notes

The implementation may meet the requirements without creating a temporary weak_ptr object.

[edit] Defect reports

The following behavior-changing defect reports were applied retroactively to previously published C++ standards.

DR Applied to Behavior as published Correct behavior
LWG 2315 C++11 move semantic was not enabled for weak_ptr enabled
