C++ Question

std::unique_ptr with lambda custom deleter doesnt compile

Can't find whats the problem in following code

std::unique_ptr<CFStringRef, std::function<void(CFStringRef)>>
cfstr(CFStringCreateWithCString(NULL, str, kCFStringEncodingUTF8),
[](CFStringRef obj){
CFRelease(obj);
});


CFStringCreateWithCString should return correct type as per CFStringCreateWithCString documentation

Error:

Answer

Building up on @NulledPointer quote:

struct CFStringRefDeleter {
    using pointer = CFStringRef;
    void operator()(CFStringRef ref) {
         CFRelease(ref);
    }
};
using CFStr_t = std::unique_ptr<CFStringRef, CFStringRefDeleter>;
CFStr_t cfstr(CFStringCreateWithCString(NULL, str, kCFStringEncodingUTF8));
CFStringRef obj = cfstr.get();
