Concepts library (C++20)

From natekohl.net
< cpp

The concepts library provides definitions of fundamental library concepts that can be used to perform compile-time validation of template arguments and perform function dispatch based on properties of types. These concepts provide a foundation for equational reasoning in programs.

Most concepts in the standard library impose both syntactic and semantic requirements. In general, only the syntactic requirements can be checked by the compiler. If a semantic requirement is not met at the point of use, the program is ill-formed, no diagnostic required.
