Casts

Lazy casts...

#include <boost/phoenix/object/static_cast.hpp>
#include <boost/phoenix/object/dynamic_cast.hpp>
#include <boost/phoenix/object/const_cast.hpp>
#include <boost/phoenix/object/reinterpret_cast.hpp>

The set of lazy C++ cast template functions provide a way of lazily casting an object of a certain type to another type. The syntax resembles the well known C++ casts. Take note however that the lazy versions have a trailing underscore.

static_cast_<T>(lambda_expression)
dynamic_cast_<T>(lambda_expression)
const_cast_<T>(lambda_expression)
reinterpret_cast_<T>(lambda_expression)

Example:

static_cast_<Base*>(&arg1)

Static-casts the address of arg1 to a Base*.
