20.3 Smart pointers [smartptr]

20.3.1 Unique-ownership pointers [unique.ptr]

20.3.1.4 unique_­ptr for array objects with a runtime length [unique.ptr.runtime]

20.3.1.4.2 Constructors [unique.ptr.runtime.ctor]

template<class U> constexpr 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.
Constraints:
  • 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> constexpr unique_ptr(U p, see below d) noexcept; template<class U> constexpr 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.
Constraints:
  • 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> constexpr unique_ptr(unique_ptr<U, E>&& u) noexcept;
This constructor behaves the same as in the primary template.
Constraints: 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.
[Note 1:
This replaces the Constraints: specification of the primary template.
