19.11.1.3.1 Constructors [unique.ptr.runtime.ctor]

template<class U> explicit unique_ptr(U p) noexcept;
This constructor behaves the same as the constructor in the primary template that takes a single parameter of type pointer except that it additionally shall not participate in overload resolution unless
  • U is the same type as pointer, or
  • pointer is the same type as element_­type*, U is a pointer type V*, and V(*)[] is convertible to element_­type(*)[].
template<class U> unique_ptr(U p, see below d) noexcept; template<class U> unique_ptr(U p, see below d) noexcept;
These constructors behave the same as the constructors in the primary template that take a parameter of type pointer and a second parameter except that they shall not participate in overload resolution unless either
  • U is the same type as pointer,
  • U is nullptr_­t, or
  • pointer is the same type as element_­type*, U is a pointer type V*, and V(*)[] is convertible to element_­type(*)[].
template<class U, class E> unique_ptr(unique_ptr<U, E>&& u) noexcept;
This constructor behaves the same as in the primary template, except that it shall not participate in overload resolution unless all of the following conditions hold, where UP is unique_­ptr<U, E>:
  • U is an array type, and
  • pointer is the same type as element_­type*, and
  • UP​::​pointer is the same type as UP​::​element_­type*, and
  • UP​::​element_­type(*)[] is convertible to element_­type(*)[], and
  • either D is a reference type and E is the same type as D, or D is not a reference type and E is implicitly convertible to D.

This replaces the overload-resolution specification of the primary template
