24.7.10.2 Class template drop_­view [range.drop.view]

namespace std::ranges { template<view V> class drop_view : public view_interface<drop_view<V>> { public: drop_view() requires default_­initializable<V> = default; constexpr drop_view(V base, range_difference_t<V> count); constexpr V base() const& requires copy_­constructible<V> { return base_; } constexpr V base() && { return std::move(base_); } constexpr auto begin() requires (!(simple-view<V> && random_­access_­range<const V> && sized_­range<const V>)); constexpr auto begin() const requires random_­access_­range<const V> && sized_­range<const V>; constexpr auto end() requires (!simple-view<V>) { return ranges::end(base_); } constexpr auto end() const requires range<const V> { return ranges::end(base_); } constexpr auto size() requires sized_­range<V> { const auto s = ranges::size(base_); const auto c = static_cast<decltype(s)>(count_); return s < c ? 0 : s - c; } constexpr auto size() const requires sized_­range<const V> { const auto s = ranges::size(base_); const auto c = static_cast<decltype(s)>(count_); return s < c ? 0 : s - c; } private: V base_ = V(); // exposition only range_difference_t<V> count_ = 0; // exposition only }; template<class R> drop_view(R&&, range_difference_t<R>) -> drop_view<views::all_t<R>>; }
constexpr drop_view(V base, range_difference_t<V> count);
Preconditions: count >= 0 is true.
Effects: Initializes base_­ with std​::​move(base) and count_­ with count.
constexpr auto begin() requires (!(simple-view<V> && random_­access_­range<const V> && sized_­range<const V>)); constexpr auto begin() const requires random_­access_­range<const V> && sized_­range<const V>;
Returns: ranges​::​next(ranges​::​begin(base_­), count_­, ranges​::​end(base_­)).
Remarks: In order to provide the amortized constant-time complexity required by the range concept when drop_­view models forward_­range, the first overload caches the result within the drop_­view for use on subsequent calls.
[Note 1:
Without this, applying a reverse_­view over a drop_­view would have quadratic iteration complexity.
