    \brief Conditionally causes an error to be generated.

    ...  = variadic parameters, maximum of 2 will be considered.
           Any variadic parameters beyond the maximum of 2 are just ignored.
    The first variadic parameter is:

    cond = A condition that determines whether an assertion occurs.  Valid values range from 0 to BOOST_PP_LIMIT_MAG.
       The second variadic parameter (optional) is:
       errstr = An error string for generating a compiler error when using the VC++ compiler.
                The VC++ compiler is incapable of producing a preprocessor error so when the 'cond'
                is 0, a compiler error is generated by outputting C++ code in the form of:
                typedef char errstr[-1];
                The errstr defaults to BOOST_VMD_ASSERT_ERROR if not supplied.
                It is only relevant for VC++.

    returns = If cond expands to 0, this macro causes an error.  Otherwise, it expands to nothing.
              For all compilers other than Visual C++ the error is a preprocessing error.
              For Visual C++ the error is caused by output invalid C++: this error could be
              masked if the invalid output is ignored by a macro which invokes this macro.
