Defined in header <tuple>
template< class T, class Tuple >
constexpr T make_from_tuple( Tuple&& t );
(since C++17)

Construct an object of type T, using the elements of the tuple t as the arguments to the constructor.

The program is ill-formed if the hypothetical variable definition T var(std::get<Is>(std::forward<Tuple>(t))...); is ill-formed, or T is a reference type and var is bound to a temporary object (since C++23), where Is... denotes the parameter pack 0, 1, ..., std::tuple_size_v<std::remove_reference_t<Tuple>> - 1.


[edit] Parameters

t - tuple whose elements to be used as arguments to the constructor of T

[edit] Return value

The constructed T object or reference.

[edit] Notes

The tuple need not be std::tuple, and instead may be anything that supports std::get and std::tuple_size; in particular, std::array and std::pair may be used.

Due to guaranteed copy elision, T need not be movable.

Feature-test macro

[edit] Possible implementation

namespace detail {
template<class T, class Tuple, std::size_t... I>
constexpr T make_from_tuple_impl(Tuple&& t, std::index_sequence<I...>)
#if __cpp_lib_reference_from_temporary >= 202202L
    if constexpr (std::tuple_size_v<std::remove_reference_t<Tuple>> == 1) {
        using tuple_first_t = decltype(std::get<0>(std::declval<Tuple>()));
        static_assert(!std::reference_constructs_from_temporary_v<T, tuple_first_t>);
    return T(std::get<I>(std::forward<Tuple>(t))...);
} // namespace detail
template<class T, class Tuple>
constexpr T make_from_tuple(Tuple&& t)
    return detail::make_from_tuple_impl<T>(std::forward<Tuple>(t),

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <tuple>
struct Foo {
    Foo(int first, float second, int third) {
        std::cout << first << ", " << second << ", " << third << "\n";
int main()
   auto tuple = std::make_tuple(42, 3.14f, 0);


42, 3.14, 0

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

DR Applied to Behavior as published Correct behavior
LWG 3528 C++17 cast containing reinterpret_cast etc. was allowed in the case of 1-tuple disallowed
