.. title:: clang-tidy - cppcoreguidelines-special-member-functions
The check finds classes where some but not all of the special member functions
are defined.
By default the compiler defines a copy constructor, copy assignment operator,
move constructor, move assignment operator and destructor. The default can be
suppressed by explicit user-definitions. The relationship between which
functions will be suppressed by definitions of other functions is complicated
and it is advised that all five are defaulted or explicitly defined.
Note that defining a function with ``= delete`` is considered to be a
This rule is part of the "Constructors, assignments, and destructors" profile of the C++ Core
Guidelines, corresponding to rule C.21. See
.. option:: AllowSoleDefaultDtor
When set to `1` (default is `0`), this check doesn't flag classes with a sole, explicitly
defaulted destructor. An example for such a class is:
.. code-block:: c++
struct A {
virtual ~A() = default;
.. option:: AllowMissingMoveFunctions
When set to `1` (default is `0`), this check doesn't flag classes which define no move
operations at all. It still flags classes which define only one of either
move constructor or move assignment operator. With this option enabled, the following class won't be flagged:
.. code-block:: c++
struct A {
A(const A&);
A& operator=(const A&);
