24.7.3 Semiregular wrapper [range.semi.wrap]

Many types in this subclause are specified in terms of an exposition-only class template semiregular-box.
semiregular-box<T> behaves exactly like optional<T> with the following differences:
  • semiregular-box<T> constrains its type parameter T with copy_­constructible<T> && is_­object_­v<T>.
  • If T models default_­initializable, the default constructor of semiregular-box<T> is equivalent to: constexpr semiregular-box() noexcept(is_nothrow_default_constructible_v<T>) : semiregular-box{in_place} { }
  • If copyable<T> is not modeled, the copy assignment operator is equivalent to: semiregular-box& operator=(const semiregular-box& that) noexcept(is_nothrow_copy_constructible_v<T>) { if (that) emplace(*that); else reset(); return *this; }
  • If movable<T> is not modeled, the move assignment operator is equivalent to: semiregular-box& operator=(semiregular-box&& that) noexcept(is_nothrow_move_constructible_v<T>) { if (that) emplace(std::move(*that)); else reset(); return *this; }
