template<class T, class... Types> constexpr bool holds_alternative(const variant<Types...>& v) noexcept;
Requires: The type T occurs exactly once in Types....
Otherwise, the program is ill-formed.
Returns: true if index() is equal to the zero-based index of T in Types....
template<size_t I, class... Types> constexpr variant_alternative_t<I, variant<Types...>>& get(variant<Types...>& v); template<size_t I, class... Types> constexpr variant_alternative_t<I, variant<Types...>>&& get(variant<Types...>&& v); template<size_t I, class... Types> constexpr const variant_alternative_t<I, variant<Types...>>& get(const variant<Types...>& v); template<size_t I, class... Types> constexpr const variant_alternative_t<I, variant<Types...>>&& get(const variant<Types...>&& v);
Requires: I < sizeof...(Types).
Otherwise the program is ill-formed.
Effects: If v.index() is I, returns a reference to the object stored in the variant.
Otherwise, throws an exception of type bad_­variant_­access.
template<class T, class... Types> constexpr T& get(variant<Types...>& v); template<class T, class... Types> constexpr T&& get(variant<Types...>&& v); template<class T, class... Types> constexpr const T& get(const variant<Types...>& v); template<class T, class... Types> constexpr const T&& get(const variant<Types...>&& v);
Requires: The type T occurs exactly once in Types....
Otherwise, the program is ill-formed.
Effects: If v holds a value of type T, returns a reference to that value.
Otherwise, throws an exception of type bad_­variant_­access.
template<size_t I, class... Types> constexpr add_pointer_t<variant_alternative_t<I, variant<Types...>>> get_if(variant<Types...>* v) noexcept; template<size_t I, class... Types> constexpr add_pointer_t<const variant_alternative_t<I, variant<Types...>>> get_if(const variant<Types...>* v) noexcept;
Requires: I < sizeof...(Types).
Otherwise the program is ill-formed.
Returns: A pointer to the value stored in the variant, if v != nullptr and v->index() == I.
Otherwise, returns nullptr.
template<class T, class... Types> constexpr add_pointer_t<T> get_if(variant<Types...>* v) noexcept; template<class T, class... Types> constexpr add_pointer_t<const T> get_if(const variant<Types...>* v) noexcept;
Requires: The type T occurs exactly once in Types....
Otherwise, the program is ill-formed.
Effects: Equivalent to: return get_­if<i>(v); with i being the zero-based index of T in Types....
