//~ 20.3.4 Function template declval [declval]
//~ 1 The library provides the function template declval to simplify the definition of expressions which occur as
//~ unevaluated operands.
//~ 2 Remarks: If this function is used, the program is ill-formed.
//~ 3 Remarks: The template parameter T of declval may be an incomplete type.
//~ [ Example:

//~ template <class To, class From>
//~ decltype(static_cast<To>(declval<From>())) convert(From&&);

//~ declares a function template convert which only participats in overloading if the type From can be
//~ explicitly converted to type To. For another example see class template common_type ( ´┐Żend
//~ example ]
//                                                                            //
