explicit operator bool() const noexcept;
(since C++23)

Checks whether *this stores a callable target, i.e. is not empty.

Contents

[edit] Parameters

(none)

[edit] Return value

true if *this stores a callable target, false otherwise.

[edit] Example

#include <functional>
#include <iostream>
 
void sampleFunction()
{
    std::cout << "This is the sample function!\n";
}
 
void checkFunc(std::move_only_function<void() const> const& func)
{
    // Use operator bool to determine if callable target is available.
    if (func)
    {
        std::cout << "Function is not empty! Calling function.\n";
        func();
    }
    else
        std::cout << "Function is empty. Nothing to do.\n";
}
 
int main()
{
    std::move_only_function<void() const> f1{};
    std::move_only_function<void() const> f2{sampleFunction};
 
    std::cout << "f1: ";
    checkFunc(f1);
 
    std::cout << "f2: ";
    checkFunc(f2);
}

Output:

f1: Function is empty. Nothing to do.
f2: Function is not empty! Calling function.
This is the sample function!
