Class function_base

boost::function_base — The common base class for all Boost.Function objects. Objects of type function_base may not be created directly.

Synopsis

class function_base {
public:

// capacity
bool empty() const;

// target access
template<typename Functor> Functor* target();
template<typename Functor> const Functor* target() const;
template<typename Functor> bool contains(const Functor&) const;
};

Description

function_base capacity

  1. bool empty() const;

    Returns: false if this has a target, and true otherwise.
    Throws: Will not throw.

function_base target access

  1. template<typename Functor> Functor* target();
    template<typename Functor> const Functor* target() const;

    Returns: If this stores a target of type Functor, returns the address of the target. Otherwise, returns the NULL pointer.
    Throws: Will not throw.

  2. template<typename Functor> bool contains(const Functor& f) const;

    Returns: true if this->target<Functor>() is non-NULL and function_equal(*(this->target<Functor>()), f)
