template <class T, class U>
concept bool EqualityComparableWith =
EqualityComparable<T>specifies that the comparison operators
==yields true if and only if the operands are equal.
EqualityComparable<T>is satisfied only if, given objects
T, bool(a == b) is true if and only if
bare equal. Together with the requirement that a == b is equality preserving, this implies that
==is symmetric and transitive, and further that
==is reflexive for all objects
athat are equal to at least one other object.
EqualityComparableWith<T, U>specifies that the comparison operators
!=on (possibly mixed)
Uoperands yield results consistent with equality. Comparing mixed operands yields results equivalent to comparing the operands converted to their common type.
EqualityComparableWith<T, U>is satisfied only if, given any lvalue
tof type const std::remove_reference_t<T> and any lvalue
uof type const std::remove_reference_t<U>, and let
Cbe ranges::common_reference_t<const std::remove_reference_t<T>&, const std::remove_reference_t<U>&>, bool(t == u) == bool(C(t) == C(u)).
An expression is equality preserving if it results in equal outputs given equal inputs.
- The inputs to an expression consist of its operands.
- The outputs of an expression consist of its result and all operands modified by the expression (if any).
Every expression required to be equality preserving is further required to be stable: two evaluations of such an expression with the same input objects must have equal outputs absent any explicit intervening modification of those input objects.
Implicit expression variations
A requires-expression that uses an expression that is non-modifying for some constant lvalue operand also implicitly requires additional variations of that expression that accept a non-constant lvalue or (possibly constant) rvalue for the given operand unless such an expression variation is explicitly required with differing semantics. These implicit expression variations must meet the same semantic requirements of the declared expression. The extent to which an implementation validates the syntax of the variations is unspecified.
