Adaptable Generator


Category: functors 
Component type: concept 
Description
An Adaptable Generator is a Generator with a nested
typedef that defines its result type. [1] This nested typedef makes
it possible to use function object adaptors.
Refinement of
Generator
Associated types
Result type

F::result_type

The type returned when the Generator is called

Notation
F

A type that is a model of Adaptable Generator

Models
The STL does not include any types that are models of Adaptable
Generator. An example of a userdefined Adaptable Generator is
as follows.
struct counter
{
typedef int result_type;
counter() : n(0) {}
result_type operator()() { return n++; }
result_type n;
};
Notes
[1]
Note the implication of this: a function pointer T (*f)()
is a Generator, but not an Adaptable Generator: the
expression f::result_type is nonsensical.
