The Boost Numeric Conversion library is a collection of tools to describe and perform conversions between values of different numeric types.
The library includes a special alternative for a subset of
std::numeric_limits<>, the bounds<>
traits class, which provides a consistent way to obtain the boundary
values for the range
of a numeric type.
It also includes a set of trait classes which describes the compile-time properties of a conversion from a source to a target numeric type. Both arithmetic and user-defined numeric types can be used.
A policy-based converter
object which uses
to select an optimized implementation is supplied. Such implementation uses
an optimal range checking code suitable for the source/target combination.
