Maybe< T > Class Template Reference

Detailed Description

template<typename T>
class shogun::Maybe< T >

Holder that represents an object that can be either present or absent. Quite simllar to std::optional introduced in C++14, but provides a way to pass the reason of absence (e.g. "incorrect parameter").

Essentially, instances are created via

Just or
Maybe<int> absent_value = Nothing();
Maybe<int> present_value = Just(3);

To check whether value is present, regular implicit cast to bool is used:

if (maybe_value)
// value exists!
// value doesn't exist!

To obtain value,

See also
value is used:
// may throw an exception
int value = unreliable.value();

To provide default values,

See also
value_or is used:
int value = unreliable.value_or(9);
