You can use the following trick:

   template<typename T, size_t N>
   const char (&sizer(const T (&)[N])) [N];

then the usage is:

   double x[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 };
   typedef int[42] X;
   enum {
      V1 = sizeof(sizer(X)),
      V2 = sizeof(sizer(x))

No typeof necessary, and doesn't compile for non-arrays.
