std::basic_string_view<CharT,Traits>::basic_string_view

From cppreference.com
 
 
 
 
constexpr basic_string_view() noexcept;
(1) (since C++17)
constexpr basic_string_view(const basic_string_view& other) noexcept = default;
(2) (since C++17)
constexpr basic_string_view(const CharT* s, size_type count);
(3) (since C++17)
constexpr basic_string_view(const CharT* s);
(4) (since C++17)
template<class It, class End>
constexpr basic_string_view(It first, End last);
(5) (since C++20)
1) Default constructor. Constructs an empty basic_string_view. After construction, data() is equal to nullptr, and size() is equal to 0.
2) Copy constructor. Constructs a view of the same content as other. After construction, data() is equal to other.data(), and size() is equal to other.size().
3) Constructs a view of the first count characters of the character array starting with the element pointed by s. s can contain null characters. The behavior is undefined if [s, s+count) is not a valid range (even though the constructor may not access any of the elements of this range). After construction, data() is equal to s, and size() is equal to count.
4) Constructs a view of the null-terminated character string pointed to by s, not including the terminating null character. The length of the view is determined as if by Traits::length(s). The behavior is undefined if [s, s+Traits::length(s)) is not a valid range. After construction, data() is equal to s, and size() is equal to Traits::length(s).
5) Constructs a basic_string_view over the range [first, last). The behavior is undefined if [first, last) is not a valid range, if It does not actually model contiguous_iterator, or if End does not actually model sized_sentinel_for for It. After construction, data() is equal to std::to_address(first), and size() is equal to last - first.

This overload only participates in overload resolution if

[edit] Parameters

other - another view to initialize the view with
s - pointer to a character array or a C string to initialize the view with
count - number of characters to include in the view
first - iterator to the first character of the sequence
last - iterator past the last character of the sequence or another sentinel

[edit] Complexity

1-3,5) constant
4) linear in length of s

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <string_view>
int main()
{
    std::wstring_view wcstr_v = L"xyzzy";
 
    char array[3] = {'B', 'a', 'r'};
    std::string_view array_v(array, std::size(array));
 
    std::string cppstr = "Foo";
    std::string_view cppstr_v(cppstr); 
 
    std::cout << cppstr_v << '\n'
              << array_v << '\n'
              << wcstr_v.size() << '\n';
}

Output:

Foo
Bar
5
