numeric_traits.hpp -- so far, supplies a way to get the difference between
two integers with less likelihood of overflow/underflow. For more detail,
see the header comment.
Howard, I took the liberty of putting your name on the copyright notice for
is_signed<>, which stole from you. I liked your implementation better than
the one I was using ;-)
numeric_traits_test.cpp also has an example of recursive templates which
even work under MSVC. These templates statically compute the maximum and
minimum value of any built-in integral type.
P.S. This is all part of the post-review work I'm doing on
