any& operator=(const any& rhs);

Effects: As if by any(rhs).swap(*this). No effects if an exception is thrown.

Returns: *this.

Throws: Any exceptions arising from the copy constructor for the contained value.

any& operator=(any&& rhs) noexcept;

Effects: As if by any(std​::​move(rhs)).swap(*this).

Returns: *this.

Postconditions: The state of *this is equivalent to the original state of rhs and rhs is left in a valid but otherwise unspecified state.

template<class T> any& operator=(T&& rhs);

Let VT be decay_­t<T>.

Requires: VT shall satisfy the CopyConstructible requirements.

Effects: Constructs an object tmp of type any that contains an object of type VT direct-initialized with std​::​forward<T>(rhs), and tmp.swap(*this). No effects if an exception is thrown.

Returns: *this.

Remarks: This operator shall not participate in overload resolution unless VT is not the same type as any and is_­copy_­constructible_­v<VT> is true.

Throws: Any exception thrown by the selected constructor of VT.
