std::ranges::borrowed_iterator_t, std::ranges::borrowed_subrange_t

From cppreference.com
< cpp‎ | ranges
 
 
 
Defined in header <ranges>
template< ranges::range R >
using borrowed_iterator_t = /* see below */;
(1) (since C++20)
template< ranges::range R >
using borrowed_subrange_t = /* see below */;
(2) (since C++20)
1) std::ranges::iterator_t<R> if R models borrowed_range, std::ranges::dangling otherwise.

These two alias templates are used by some constrained algorithms to avoid returning potentially dangling iterators or views.

[edit] Possible implementation

First version
template< std::ranges::range R >
using borrowed_iterator_t = std::conditional_t<std::ranges::borrowed_range<R>,
    std::ranges::iterator_t<R>, std::ranges::dangling>;
Second version
template< std::ranges::range R >
using borrowed_subrange_t = std::conditional_t<std::ranges::borrowed_range<R>,
    std::ranges::subrange<std::ranges::iterator_t<R>>, std::ranges::dangling>;
