`MoveAssignable`

requirement for container value type overly strict**Section:** 24.2 [container.requirements] **Status:** C++11
**Submitter:** Howard Hinnant **Opened:** 2007-05-20 **Last modified:** 2016-01-28

**Priority: **Not Prioritized

**View all other** issues in [container.requirements].

**View all issues with** C++11 status.

**Discussion:**

The move-related changes inadvertently overwrote the intent of 276.
Issue 276 removed the requirement of `CopyAssignable`

from
most of the member functions of node-based containers. But the move-related changes
unnecessarily introduced the `MoveAssignable`

requirement for those members which used to
require `CopyAssignable`

.

We also discussed (c++std-lib-18722) the possibility of dropping `MoveAssignable`

from some of the sequence requirements. Additionally the *in-place* construction
work may further reduce requirements. For purposes of an easy reference, here are the
minimum sequence requirements as I currently understand them. Those items in requirements
table in the working draft which do not appear below have been purposefully omitted for
brevity as they do not have any requirements of this nature. Some items which do not
have any requirements of this nature are included below just to confirm that they were
not omitted by mistake.

This is one of the issues that was "solved by concepts" and is now no longer solved.

In a nutshell, concepts adopted the "minimum requirements" philosophy outlined in the discussion of this issue, and enforced it. My strong suggestion is that we translate the concepts specification into documentation for the containers.

What this means for vendors is that they will have to implement container members being careful to only use those characteristics of a type that the concepts specification formally allowed. Note that I

am nottalking about`enable_if`

'ing everything. I am simply suggesting that (for example) we tell the vendor he can't call`T's`

copy constructor or move constructor within the`emplace`

member function, etc.What this means for customers is that they will be able to use types within C++03 containers which are sometimes not CopyConstructible, and sometimes not even MoveConstructible, etc.

I took the task to see whether 868 is covered by 704 already. However, by doing that I have the impression that 704 is a big mistake.

Take e.g. the second change of 868:

Change 24.3.9.2 [deque.cons] para 5:

Effects:Constructs a`deque`

with`n`

default constructed elements.where "default constructed" should be replaced by "value-initialized". This is the constructor out of a number of elements:

ContType c(num)704 says:

Remove the entire section 24.3.9.2 [deque.cons].

[ This section is already specified by the requirements tables. ]

BUT, there is no requirement table that lists this constructor at all, which means that we would lose the entire specification of this function !!!

In fact, I found with further investigation, if we follow 704 to remove 23.3.2.1 we

- have no semantics for
`ContType c(num)`

- have no complexity and no allocator specification for
`ContType c(num,val)`

- have no semantics for
`ContType c(num,val,alloc)`

- - have no complexity and no allocator specification for
`ContType c(beg,end)`

- - have no semantics for
`ContType c(beg,end,alloc)`

- - have different wording (which might or might not give the same guarantees) for the
`assign`

functionsbecause all these guarantees are given in the removed section but nowhere else (as far as I saw).

Looks to me that 704 need a significant review before we take that change, because chances are high that there are similar flaws in other proposed changes there (provided I am not missing anything).

*[

Removed the parts from the proposed wording that removed existing sections, and set to Ready for Pittsburgh.

**Rationale:**

*[
post San Francisco:
]*

Solved by N2776.

This rationale is obsolete.

**Proposed resolution:**

Change 24.2.2 [container.requirements.general]/4:

4 In Tables 91 and 92,

`X`

denotes a container class containing objects of type`T`

,`a`

and`b`

denote values of type`X`

,`u`

denotes an identifier,`r`

denotes~~an lvalue or a const rvalue~~a non-const value of type`X`

, and`rv`

denotes a non-const rvalue of type`X`

.

Change the following rows in Table 91 — Container requirements 24.2.2 [container.requirements.general]:

Change 24.2.2 [container.requirements.general]/10:

Unless otherwise specified (see 23.2.4.1, 23.2.5.1, 23.3.2.3, and 23.3.6.4) all container types defined in this Clause meet the following additional requirements:

…

no

`erase()`

,`clear()`

,`pop_back()`

or`pop_front()`

function throws an exception.…

Insert a new paragraph prior to 24.2.2 [container.requirements.general]/14:

The descriptions of the requirements of the type

`T`

in this section use the terms`CopyConstructible`

,`MoveConstructible`

,constructible from, and`*i`

constructible from. These terms are equivalent to the following expression using the appropriate arguments:`args`

allocator_traits<allocator_type>::construct(x.get_allocator(), q, args...);where

`x`

is a non-const lvalue of some container type`X`

and`q`

has type`X::value_type*`

.[

Example:The container is going to move construct a`T`

, so will call:allocator_traits<allocator_type>::construct(get_allocator(), q, std::move(t));The default implementation of construct will call:

::new (q) T(std::forward<T>(t)); // where forward is the same as move here, cast to rvalueBut the allocator author may override the above definition of

`construct`

and do the construction of`T`

by some other means. —end example]14 ...

Add to 24.2.2 [container.requirements.general]/14:

14 In Table 93,

`X`

denotes an allocator-aware container class with a`value_type`

of`T`

using allocator of type`A`

,`u`

denotes a variable,`a`

and`b`

denote non-const lvalues of type`X`

,`t`

denotes an lvalue or a const rvalue of type`X`

,`rv`

denotes a non-const rvalue of type`X`

,`m`

is a value of type`A`

, and`Q`

is an allocator type.

Insert a new paragraph prior to 24.2.8 [unord.req]/9:

The unordered associative containers meet all of the requirements of Allocator-aware containers (24.2.2 [container.requirements.general]), except for the containers

`unordered_map`

and`unordered_multimap`

, the requirements placed on`value_type`

in Table 93 apply instead directly to`key_type`

and`mapped_type`

. [Note:For example`key_type`

and`mapped_type`

are sometimes required to be`CopyAssignable`

even though the`value_type`

(`pair<const key_type, mapped_type>`

) is not`CopyAssignable`

. —end note]9 ...

Change [forwardlist]/2:

2 A

`forward_list`

satisfies all of the requirements of a container (table 91), except that the`size()`

member function is not provided. A`forward_list`

also satisfies all of the requirements of an allocator-aware container (table 93). And`forward_list`

provides the`assign`

member functions as specified in Table 94, Sequence container requirements, and several of the optional sequence container requirements (Table 95). Descriptions are provided here only for operations on`forward_list`

that are not described in that table or for operations where there is additional semantic information.

Add a new paragraph after [forwardlist.modifiers]/23:

void clear();23

Effects:Erases all elements in the range`[begin(),end())`

.

Remarks:Does not invalidate past-the-end iterators.

Change 24.3.12.3 [vector.capacity]/13:

void resize(size_type sz, const T& c);13

Requires:`T`

shall be`CopyConstructible`

. If`value_type`

has a move constructor, that constructor shall not throw any exceptions.

In 24.5.6 [unord.set] and 24.5.7 [unord.multiset] substitute
"`Key`

" for "`Value`

".

[ The above substitution is normative as it ties into the requirements table. ]
