The BOOST_PP_LIST_TO_TUPLE macro converts a list to a tuple.

Usage

BOOST_PP_LIST_TO_TUPLE(list)

Arguments

list
The list to be converted.

Remarks

If list is, for example, (a, (b, (c, BOOST_PP_NIL))), this macro will produce:
(a, b, c)
Previously, this macro could not be used inside BOOST_PP_FOR.  There is no longer any such restriction.  It is more efficient, however, to use BOOST_PP_LIST_TO_TUPLE_R in such a situation.

If the list to be converted is empty, as represented by 'BOOST_PP_NIL', the resulting tuple is undefined since a tuple cannot be empty.

BOOST_PP_LIST_TO_TUPLE(LIST) // expands to (w, x, y, z)
