I took a quick look, looks pretty neat ;)
I like it ;)
> Hello all
> I have my own C++ framework (http://cbear.berlios.de, SVN:
> http://tools.assembla.com/svn/cbear/trunk/) which has some useful (IMHO)
> libraries. One of this library is "cast" library
> which allows you to convert objects without specifying a type:
> char c;
> int i;
> // if(c == static_cast<char>(i))
> if(c == cast::static_::value(i))
> It is useful when you want to convert an object to a type of another
> object. And this is also more safe, compare to standard casting, for
> example in previous code someone can change the type of c to wchar_t,
> and if you use static_cast, the compiler will not even warn you about
> incorrect casting. So, you have to manually check all the code.
> Currently there are several castings: static, reinterpret, const,
> dynamic, polymorphic (based on Boost.polymorphic_cast), polymorphic_down
> (based on Boost.polymorphic_downcast), explicit (calls an explicit
> constructor), safe_reinterpret (compare sizes of converting types),
> default (returns an object created by default constructor).
> Thank you.
