Did you

#include <boost/type_traits/is_integral.hpp>


If you wish to restrict the function to floating point types you may
also which to use enable_if:

template <class T>
typename boost::enable_if<is_floating_point<T>,
return-type-for-function>::type my_function(T val)
   // body here.

HTH, John.
