< cpp‎ | utility‎ | tuple

Defined in header <tuple>
template< class... Types >
tuple<VTypes...> make_tuple( Types&&... args );
(since C++11)
(until C++14)
template< class... Types >
constexpr tuple<VTypes...> make_tuple( Types&&... args );
(since C++14)

Creates a tuple object, deducing the target type from the types of arguments.

For each Ti in Types..., the corresponding type Vi in Vtypes... is std::decay<Ti>::type unless application of std::decay results in std::reference_wrapper<X> for some type X, in which case the deduced type is X&.


[edit] Parameters

args - zero or more arguments to construct the tuple from

[edit] Return value

A std::tuple object containing the given values, created as if by std::tuple<VTypes...>(std::forward<Types>(t)...).

[edit] Possible implementation

template <class T>
struct special_decay
    using type = typename std::decay<T>::type;
template <class T>
struct special_decay<std::reference_wrapper<T>>
    using type = T&;
template <class T>
using special_decay_t = typename special_decay<T>::type;
template <class... Types>
auto make_tuple(Types&&... args)
    return std::tuple<special_decay_t<Types>...>(std::forward<Types>(args)...);

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <tuple>
#include <functional>
int main()
    auto t1 = std::make_tuple(10, "Test", 3.14);
    std::cout << "The value of t1 is "
              << "(" << std::get<0>(t1) << ", " << std::get<1>(t1)
              << ", " << std::get<2>(t1) << ")\n";
    int n = 1;
    auto t2 = std::make_tuple(std::ref(n), n);
    n = 7;
    std::cout << "The value of t2 is "
              << "(" << std::get<0>(t2) << ", " << std::get<1>(t2) << ")\n";


The value of t1 is (10, Test, 3.14)
The value of t2 is (7, 1)
