> struct pair;

std::pair is a struct template that provides a way to store two heterogeneous objects as a single unit. A pair is a specific case of a std::tuple with two elements.

If std::is_trivially_destructible_v<T1> && std::is_trivially_destructible_v<T2> is true, the destructor of pair is trivial.

(since C++17)

Template parameters

T1, T2 - the types of the elements that the pair stores.

Member types

Member type Definition
first_type T1
second_type T2

Member objects

Member name Type

second T2

Member functions
