BoostBook element signature

signature — One signature of an overloaded function or method

Synopsis

signature ::= (template?, type, parameter*)

Description

A signature refers to one declaration of an overloaded function or method. The signature itself has no name, because the name of the overloaded function or method is used. An overloaded function or method will have several signatures that will generally be typeset together.
