assert() ?

Recommended Posts

Assuming you're referring to the C standard library assert() macro, assert() is activated when the preprocessor symbol NDEBUG isn't defined. Generally, release builds #define NDEBUG as a project property.

The assert() macro in the C library <assert.h> (or std::assert in the C++ standard library <cassert>) is documented as being a null operation if the symbol NDEBUG is defined. If your definition of "debug build" and "release build" do not and do define that symbol respectively, then yes, your assumption will hold true, otherwise no.

assert() is a macro and doesn't live in the std namespace.
