Using std::expected from C++23

by Bartlomiej Filipek

From the article:

Imagine you’re expecting a certain result from a function, but oops… things don’t always go as planned:
/*RESULT*/ findRecord(Database& db, int recordId) {
    if (!db.connected())
        return /*??*/
    auto record = db.query(recordId);
    if (record.valid) {
        return record;
    return /*??*/
What can you do? What should you return or output through /*RESULT*/ ?
