is_scalar

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

Inherits: If T is a (possibly cv-qualified) scalar type then inherits from true_type, otherwise inherits from false_type. Scalar types include integral, floating point, enumeration, pointer, and pointer-to-member types.

C++ Standard Reference: 3.9p10.

Header: #include <boost/type_traits/is_scalar.hpp> or #include <boost/type_traits.hpp>

Compiler Compatibility: If the compiler does not support partial-specialization of class templates, then this template can not be used with function types.

Examples:

is_scalar<int*> inherits from true_type.

is_scalar<int>::type is the type true_type.

is_scalar<double>::value is an integral constant expression that evaluates to true.

is_scalar<int (*)(long)>::value is an integral constant expression that evaluates to true.

is_scalar<int (MyClass::*)(long)>::value is an integral constant expression that evaluates to true.

is_scalar<int (MyClass::*)>::value is an integral constant expression that evaluates to true.

is_scalar<T>::value_type is the type bool.
