Boost C++ Libraries of the most highly regarded and expertly designed C++ library projects in the world. Herb Sutter and Andrei Alexandrescu, C++ Coding Standards

template <class T>
struct has_new_operator : public true_type-or-false_type {};

Inherits: If T is a (possibly cv-qualified) type with an overloaded new-operator then inherits from true_type, otherwise inherits from false_type.

Compiler Compatibility: Not usable with compilers that do not support "substitution failure is not an error" (in which case BOOST_NO_SFINAE will be defined), also known to be broken with the Borland/Codegear compiler.

C++ Standard Reference: 12.5.
