std::future<T> get_future();
(since C++11)

Returns a future object associated with the same shared state as *this.

Exception is thrown if *this has no shared state or get_future has already been called. To get multiple "pop" ends of the promise-future communication channel, use std::future::share.



Return value

A future referring to the shared state of *this.

  • *this has no shared state. The error category is set to no_state.
  • get_future() has already been called on a promise with the same shared state as *this. The error category is set to future_already_retrieved.
