Several shared_ptr related functions have wide contracts and cannot throw, so should be marked unconditionally noexcept.

Proposed change:

Add noexcept to:

template<class U> 
bool 
shared_ptr::owner_before(shared_ptr<U> const& b) const noexcept;
 
template<class U> 
bool 
shared_ptr::owner_before(weak_ptr<U> const& b) const noexcept;

template<class U> 
bool  
weak_ptr::owner_before(shared_ptr<U> const& b) const noexcept; 

template<class U> 
bool
weak_ptr::owner_before(weak_ptr<U> const& b) const noexcept;
 
bool owner_less::operator()(A,B) const noexcept; // all versions

Accepted as Immediate to resolve NB comment.

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4640.

  1. Modify 23.11.3 [util.smartptr.shared] as indicated:

      template<class U> bool owner_before(const shared_ptr<U>& b) const noexcept;
      template<class U> bool owner_before(const weak_ptr<U>& b) const noexcept;
    
  2. Modify 23.11.3.5 [util.smartptr.shared.obs] as indicated:

    template<class U> bool owner_before(const shared_ptr<U>& b) const noexcept;
    template<class U> bool owner_before(const weak_ptr<U>& b) const noexcept;
    
  3. Modify 23.11.5 [util.smartptr.ownerless] as indicated:

    template<class T> struct owner_less<shared_ptr<T>> {
       bool operator()(const shared_ptr<T>&, const shared_ptr<T>&) const noexcept;
       bool operator()(const shared_ptr<T>&, const weak_ptr<T>&) const noexcept;
       bool operator()(const weak_ptr<T>&, const shared_ptr<T>&) const noexcept;
    };
    
    template<class T> struct owner_less<weak_ptr<T>> {
       bool operator()(const weak_ptr<T>&, const weak_ptr<T>&) const noexcept;
       bool operator()(const shared_ptr<T>&, const weak_ptr<T>&) const noexcept;
       bool operator()(const weak_ptr<T>&, const shared_ptr<T>&) const noexcept;
    };
    
    template<> struct owner_less<void> {
       template<class T, class U>
          bool operator()(const shared_ptr<T>&, const shared_ptr<U>&) const noexcept;
       template<class T, class U>
          bool operator()(const shared_ptr<T>&, const weak_ptr<U>&) const noexcept;
       template<class T, class U>
          bool operator()(const weak_ptr<T>&, const shared_ptr<U>&) const noexcept;
       template<class T, class U>
          bool operator()(const weak_ptr<T>&, const weak_ptr<U>&) const noexcept;
       using is_transparent = unspecified;
    };
