(since C++20)

std::identity is a function object type whose operator() returns its argument unchanged.

operator()

(public member function)

std::identity::operator()

template< class T>
constexpr T&& operator()( T&& t ) const noexcept;

Returns std::forward<T>(t).

Parameters

t - argument to return

Return value

std::forward<T>(t).

[edit] Notes

The member type is_transparent indicates to the caller that this function object is a transparent function object: it accepts arguments of arbitrary types and uses perfect forwarding, which avoids unnecessary copying and conversion when the function object is used in heterogeneous context, or with rvalue arguments. In particular, template functions such as std::set::find and std::set::lower_bound make use of this member type on their Compare types.
