> Have you looked for compound traits in other libraries that could be added to TypeTraits for convenience? That is, if it is very common to combine certain traits, then a single trait that captures the compound would simplify a good deal of code.
No I have not.
what about is_voidstar? I am using this a lot in my addition.
Would it be meaningful to add this?
I checked a bit more for duplicates:
* these are duplicate:
. boost/detail/has_default_constructor.hpp and
. boost/type_traits/is_float.hpp and
boost/type_traits/is_floating_point.hpp (is_float is not in the
* these would be nice to have in type_traits
* are these duplicates?
. boost/ptr_container/detail/is_convertible.hpp and
. boost/icl/type_traits/is_discrete.hpp and boost/type_traits/is_scalar.hpp
. boost/preprocessor/facilities/is_empty.hpp and
. is_member_function_pointer.hpp in boost/function_types and boost/type_traits
. is_member_object_pointer.hpp in boost/function_types and boost/type_traits
. is_member_pointer.hpp in boost/function_types and boost/type_traits
* will be part of the type trait extension
. boost/detail/is_incrementable.hpp ->
has_operator_prefix_increment<T> and has_operator_postfix_increment<T>
. boost/exception/detail/is_output_streamable.hpp ->
