//!   This header forward declares boost::container::constructible_with_allocator_prefix,
//!   boost::container::constructible_with_allocator_suffix and
//!   boost::container::uses_allocator. Also defines the following types:

namespace boost {
namespace container {


   template <int Dummy = 0>
   struct std_allocator_arg_holder
      static ::std::allocator_arg_t *dummy;

   template <int Dummy>
   ::std::allocator_arg_t *std_allocator_arg_holder<Dummy>::dummy;

typedef const std::allocator_arg_t & allocator_arg_t;


//! The allocator_arg_t struct is an empty structure type used as a unique type to
//! disambiguate constructor and function overloading. Specifically, several types
//! have constructors with allocator_arg_t as the first argument, immediately followed
//! by an argument of a type that satisfies Allocator requirements
typedef unspecified allocator_arg_t;


//! The `erased_type` struct is an empty struct that serves as a placeholder for a type
//! T in situations where the actual type T is determined at runtime. For example,
//! the nested type, `allocator_type`, is an alias for `erased_type` in classes that
//! use type-erased allocators.
struct erased_type {};

//! A instance of type
//! allocator_arg_t
static allocator_arg_t allocator_arg = BOOST_CONTAINER_DOC1ST(unspecified, *std_allocator_arg_holder<>::dummy);

// @cond

template <class T>
struct constructible_with_allocator_suffix;

template <class T>
struct constructible_with_allocator_prefix;

template <typename T, typename Allocator>
struct uses_allocator;
