Construct, New, Delete, Casts

You'll probably want to work with objects. There are lazy versions of constructor calls, new, delete and the suite of C++ casts. Examples:

construct<std::string>(arg1, arg2)  // constructs a std::string from arg1, arg2
new_<std::string>(arg1, arg2)       // makes a new std::string from arg1, arg2
delete_(arg1)                       // deletes arg1 (assumed to be a pointer)
static_cast_<int*>(arg1)            // static_cast's arg1 to an int*
[Note] Note

Take note that, by convention, names that conflict with C++ reserved words are appended with a single trailing underscore '_'
